How to Tell If You Need to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Air Quality

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Lincoln home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for great health. So what are some indicators 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 Lincoln, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other problems 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 play a role in your health; it might damage the things in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you might have poor indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
