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. Most of our exposure to impurities happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty 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 quite a few physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Saint Petersburg, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it could damage the items in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you might have reduced indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that is always around.
