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

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own York home. A lot of our exposure to impurities takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for better health. So what are some indicators that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in York, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish 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 play a role in your health; it could damage the items in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you may have reduced indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that is always around.
