According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Lexington home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants 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 great health. So what are some signs that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?
How You Feel
There are quite a few physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Lexington, like: 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 problem.
Odors and Damage
Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it might 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 signs that you might have poor indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that is always around.
