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 within your own Menomonie and western Wisconsin home. A lot of our exposure to impurities 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 vital for great 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 bad indoor air quality in Menomonie and western Wisconsin, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other illnesses 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 issue.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it may damage the things in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you might have reduced indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that never goes away.
