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

Air Quality

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Springfield home. Most of our exposure to impurities occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for better health. So what are some indicators that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Springfield, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

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