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

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

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in East Hanover, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other illnesses 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

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact 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 could have bad indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that is always around.
