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

Air Quality

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Hattiesburg home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for good health. So what are some signals 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 Hattiesburg, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it may damage the furniture 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 might have poor indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
