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

October 24, 2016

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Kutztown home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants 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 crucial for good 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 Kutztown, like: 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 go away when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it might damage the items in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you may have reduced indoor air quality.
