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 within your own Topeka home. The majority of our exposure to contaminants takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for better health. So what are some signs that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Topeka, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

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