Despite popular belief, the bulk of our exposure to pollutants takes place indoors rather than outdoors – indoor air can be two-to-five times more polluted than air outside, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. Also, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are expended indoors. How can we make sure that our indoor air quality is the best it can be and confirm that our health isn’t negatively impacted by what’s right in our home?
The first step to inspecting the indoor air quality of your house is looking internally – how do you feel in your home? What physical symptoms do you experience indoors? Poor air quality can easily be identified through watery eyes, headaches, coughing, fatigue, sneezing and a few other symptoms that can often be mistaken for other illnesses such as a cold or allergies. The best measure to decide if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if they subside once you are away from your home.
The next stage toward increasing air quality is inspecting for odors or damage in the items around your home. Walls and ceilings can appear discolored and wood furniture can also warp or chip. There may also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to leave. All of these things can indicate poor air quality in your home and can significantly impact your belongings.
