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

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Great Falls home. The majority of our exposure to impurities 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 crucial for great 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 Great Falls, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other ailments 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 problem.

Odors and Damage

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