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 Middletown home. A lot of our exposure to impurities 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 crucial for better health. So what are some signs that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Middletown, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other illnesses 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

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it could damage the things in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you could have reduced indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that is always around.
