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

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Abilene home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for good health. So what are some signs that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Abilene, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other problems 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 issue.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it could damage the items in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you may have reduced indoor air quality.
