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

Contrary to popular belief, the majority of our exposure to pollutants takes place indoors rather than outdoors – indoor air can be two-to-five times more polluted than air outside, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. Plus, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors. How can we ensure that our indoor air quality is the best it can be and make sure that our health will not be negatively impacted by what’s right in our home?

The first step to inspecting the indoor air quality of your residence is looking internally – how do you feel in your home? What physical symptoms do you experience indoors? Poor air quality can easily be acknowledged through watery eyes, headaches, coughing, fatigue, sneezing and a few other symptoms that may be mistaken for other illnesses such as a cold or allergies. The best measure to determine if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if they subside once you are away from your home.

The next step toward increasing air quality is inspecting for odors or damage in the items within your home. Walls and ceilings can appear discolored and wood furniture can start to warp or chip. There might also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to disappear. All of these things can indicate poor air quality in your home and can seriously impact your belongings.
