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 inside your own Macon home. A lot 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 vital 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 Macon, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it could damage the furniture 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 could have reduced indoor air quality.
