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 inside your own Moline home. The majority of our exposure to contaminants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital 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 poor indoor air quality in Moline, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it might damage the items in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you could have poor indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that never goes away.
