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

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Minocqua home. The majority of our exposure to contaminants takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for great health. So what are some indicators that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Minocqua, 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 go away when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it might damage the things in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, 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 is always around.
