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 in your own Buellton home. Most of our exposure to impurities takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated 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 variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Buellton, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other problems 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 issue.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it might damage the furniture in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you could have poor indoor air quality.
