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

October 24, 2016

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Rocky Mount home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants occurs 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 better 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 bad indoor air quality in Rocky Mount, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety 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 may be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

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