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

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Suffolk/Nassau County home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants 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 vital 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 Suffolk/Nassau County, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other illnesses 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

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