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 Hickory home. A lot of our exposure to impurities takes place 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 boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Hickory, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other ailments 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 issue.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it might damage the things in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you may have poor indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
