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 inside your own Bloomfield home. The majority 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 vital for better health. So what are some signals 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 Bloomfield, such as: 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 disappear when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it might damage the things in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you could have bad indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
