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 Hudsonville home. A lot of our exposure to impurities happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for better health. So what are some indicators that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Hudsonville, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

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