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 in your own Pocatello home. Most of our exposure to contaminants 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 essential for good 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 reduced indoor air quality in Pocatello, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified 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 problem.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it might 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 signs that you might have bad indoor air quality.
