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

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Genoa home. The majority of our exposure to impurities 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 crucial for great health. So what are some indicators 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 Genoa, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified 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 problem.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it may damage the things 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 poor indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
