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

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Greensburg home. Most of our exposure to pollutants occurs 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 great 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 reduced indoor air quality in Greensburg, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish 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 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 indicators that you may have reduced indoor air quality.
