How to Tell If You Need to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Homer Glen home. The majority of our exposure to impurities 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 essential for great health. So what are some indicators that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Homer Glen, such as: 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 go away when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it might 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 things that show that you could have bad indoor air quality.
