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

Air Quality

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Marietta home. Most of our exposure to contaminants 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 crucial 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 reduced indoor air quality in Marietta, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear 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 play a role in 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 could have bad indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
