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 within your own Hendersonville home. Most of our exposure to contaminants takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for good health. So what are some signs that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Hendersonville, 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 matter.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it might damage the items in your home. You might 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. There also might be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
