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

October 24, 2016

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Long Beach home. The majority of our exposure to contaminants occurs 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 good 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 Long Beach, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it may damage the items in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you could have reduced indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that is always around.
