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 inside your own Columbus home. Most of our exposure to pollutants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for better health. So what are some signals that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Columbus, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

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