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 Holdrege home. Most of our exposure to pollutants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for better 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 Holdrege, like: 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 disappear when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it may damage the furniture in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you could have reduced indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
