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 Wisconsin Rapids home. The majority of our exposure to impurities occurs 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 good health. So what are some indicators that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Wisconsin Rapids, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear 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 play a role in your health; it might damage the things in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you might have reduced indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that is always around.
