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

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Orange County home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for good health. So what are some indicators that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Orange County, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host 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 problem.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it may 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 indicators that you may have bad indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that never goes away.
