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 inside your own Keokuk home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for great health. So what are some indicators that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Keokuk, such as: 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 may be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Bad 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 tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you could have bad indoor air quality.
