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 in your own Bloomfield home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants 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 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 go away when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

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