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

Air Quality

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Auburn home. Most 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 essential for good 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 reduced indoor air quality in Auburn, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety 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 may be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it could damage the items in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you could have poor indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that is always around.
