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 Saint Petersburg 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 great health. So what are some signs that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Saint Petersburg, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified 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 issue.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it could damage the furniture in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you could have poor indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that is always around.
