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

October 24, 2016

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Abilene home. The majority of our exposure to contaminants takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for great health. So what are some signals that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Abilene, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number 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 matter.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it could damage the things in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you might have reduced indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
