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 inside your own Delray Beach home. The majority of our exposure to contaminants occurs 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 better health. So what are some signals that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Delray Beach, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety 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

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 tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you may have reduced indoor air quality.
