How to Tell If You Need to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality10/24/2016 In spite of popular belief, most of our exposure to pollutants occurs indoors rather than outdoors – indoor air can be two-to-five times more polluted than air outside, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. Also, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are consumed indoors. How can we ensure that our indoor air quality is the highest it can be and make sure that our health will not be negatively impacted by what’s right in our house? The first step to examining the indoor air quality of your house is looking internally – how do you feel in your home? What physical symptoms do you experience indoors? Poor air quality can easily be identified through watery eyes, headaches, coughing, fatigue, sneezing and a few other symptoms that can often be mistaken for other illnesses such as a cold or allergies. The best check to decide if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if they subside once you are outside of your home. The next stage toward increasing air quality is examining for odors or damage in the items around your home. Walls and ceilings can become discolored and wood furniture can also warp or chip. There could also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away. All of these factors can indicate poor air quality in your home and can seriously impact your belongings.
