According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Ellsworth home. A lot of our exposure to impurities happens 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 good health. So what are some indicators 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 Ellsworth, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other problems 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 matter.
Odors and Damage
Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it might damage the items in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you may have reduced indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that never goes away.
