How to Tell If You Need to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

October 24, 2016

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Huntsville home. Most of our exposure to pollutants takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for great health. So what are some indicators that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Huntsville, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it could damage the furniture in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you could have bad indoor air quality.
