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 in your own Port Saint Lucie home. Most of our exposure to contaminants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for great health. So what are some signals that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Port Saint Lucie, for example: 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 vanish when you’re outside of the house, it might 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 may start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you might have poor indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that never goes away.
