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 in your own Moline home. Most of our exposure to pollutants 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 essential for great health. So what are some signs that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Moline, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for 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 problem.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it could damage the furniture in your home. You may 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.
