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

Despite popular belief, the majority of our exposure to pollutants occurs 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. Also, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are expended indoors. How can we check that our indoor air quality is the best it can be and confirm that our health isn’t negatively impacted by what’s right in your home?

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 identified through watery eyes, headaches, coughing, fatigue, sneezing and a few other symptoms that can often be mistaken for other illnesses such as a cold or allergies. The best measure to see if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if they go away once you are away from your home.

The next stage toward increasing air quality is inspecting 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 may also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to disappear. All of these items can indicate poor air quality in your home and can greatly impact your belongings.
