According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Mount Pleasant home. Most of our exposure to contaminants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty 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 boost your indoor air quality?
How You Feel
There are a number of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Mount Pleasant, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality issue.
Odors and Damage
Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it may 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 might have reduced indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
