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 in your own Hudsonville home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for great health. So what are some signs that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of 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 mistaken for other illnesses 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

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it may damage the things in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you may have bad indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that never goes away.
