According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Columbus home. The majority of our exposure to contaminants 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 great health. So what are some signs that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?
How You Feel
There are a variety of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Columbus, for example: 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 vanish 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 affect your health; it could 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 indicators that you could have reduced indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that never goes away.
