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 within your own Mount Hope home. Most of our exposure to pollutants 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 great health. So what are some signs that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Mount Hope, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety 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 problem.

Odors and Damage

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