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 within your own Savage home. A lot 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 great health. So what are some signs that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Savage, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other ailments 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 issue.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it could damage the things in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you may have reduced indoor air quality.
