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

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Chadron home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for good health. So what are some indicators that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Chadron, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it could damage the items in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you may have bad indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that is always around.
