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 in your own Waterloo home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for great health. So what are some indicators that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Waterloo, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host 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 might be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it might damage the furniture in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you could have reduced indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that is always around.
