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 inside your own Mount Pleasant home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for great health. So what are some signs that you may need to better 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 variety of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

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