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

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Hauppauge home. The majority of our exposure to impurities happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for great health. So what are some signals that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Hauppauge, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other problems 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 play a role in your health; it may damage the things in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you may have bad indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
