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

Air Quality

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Rocky Mount home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for better health. So what are some signs that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Rocky Mount, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it could damage the things in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you could have poor indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that never goes away.
