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

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Kearney home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for better health. So what are some indicators that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Kearney, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other problems 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 matter.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it could damage the furniture in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you might have bad indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that never goes away.
