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 in your own Norton home. Most of our exposure to pollutants 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 signs that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Norton, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other ailments 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 problem.

Odors and Damage

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