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 in your own Redford 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 good 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 Redford, 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 disappear when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just impact 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 things that show that you may have bad indoor air quality.
