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 within your own Newton home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants 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 better health. So what are some signals that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Newton, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host 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 could be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

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