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

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Sylmar home. The majority 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 crucial for great health. So what are some signals that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Sylmar, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as 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 issue.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it might damage the things in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you could have bad indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that never goes away.
