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

Despite popular belief, the majority of our exposure to pollutants happens indoors rather than outdoors – indoor air can be two-to-five times more polluted than air outside, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. Plus, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are consumed indoors. How can we make sure that our indoor air quality is the best it can be and ensure that our health will not be negatively impacted by what’s right in our house?

The first step to inspecting the indoor air quality of your house is looking internally – how do you feel in your home? What physical symptoms do you experience indoors? Poor air quality can easily be acknowledged through watery eyes, headaches, coughing, fatigue, sneezing and a few other symptoms that typically can be mistaken for other illnesses such as a cold or allergies. The best check to determine if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if you see them go away once you are away from your home.

The next phase toward improving air quality is examining for odors or damage in the items throughout your home. Walls and ceilings can look discolored and wood furniture can also warp or chip. There could also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away. All of these factors can indicate poor air quality in your home and can significantly impact your belongings.
