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 Dayton home. A lot 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 essential for good health. So what are some signs that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Dayton, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it could damage the items in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you may have reduced indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that is always around.
