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

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Lexington home. Most of our exposure to pollutants takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for better health. So what are some signals that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Lexington, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it might damage the things 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 might have bad indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
