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 Metro Atlanta home. The majority 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 essential for good health. So what are some signs that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Metro Atlanta, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

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