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

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Mount Pleasant home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants takes place 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 indicators that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Mount Pleasant, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it might damage the items in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you might have poor indoor air quality.
