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

October 24, 2016

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Kearney home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants 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 good health. So what are some signals that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced 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 may be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

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