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

October 24, 2016

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Huffman home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for good 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 Huffman, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other illnesses 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

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it might damage the furniture in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you could have bad indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
