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

October 24, 2016

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Plover home. A lot of our exposure to impurities occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for better 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 bad indoor air quality in Plover, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it could damage the furniture in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you could have poor indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
