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

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Lake Worth home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants 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 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 variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Lake Worth, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other problems 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 problem.

Odors and Damage

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