According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own West Columbia home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for good health. So what are some signals that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?
How You Feel
There are a variety of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in West Columbia, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality problem.
Odors and Damage
Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it may damage the things in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you could have bad indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that is always around.
