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 in your own Genoa home. Most of our exposure to impurities happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for good 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 Genoa, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other ailments 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 issue.

Odors and Damage

Poor 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 tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you may have poor indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that is always around.
