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

October 24, 2016

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Branchville home. The majority of our exposure to impurities happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for better health. So what are some signals that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

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

Odors and Damage

Reduced 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 discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you might have bad indoor air quality.
