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 Moline home. The majority of our exposure to contaminants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for better 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 reduced indoor air quality in Moline, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other ailments 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 issue.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it may damage the furniture in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you might have bad indoor air quality.
