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

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Excelsior Springs home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for great health. So what are some signals 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 Excelsior Springs, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other illnesses 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 problem.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it might 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 indicators that you may have poor indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that never goes away.
