Contrary to popular belief, most of our exposure to pollutants happens 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. Plus, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are consumed indoors. How can we make sure that our indoor air quality is the greatest it can be and make sure that our health isn’t negatively impacted by what’s right in our house?
The first step to checking the indoor air quality of your residence is looking internally – how do you feel in your home? What physical symptoms do you experience when you are indoors? Poor air quality can easily be recognized through watery eyes, headaches, coughing, fatigue, sneezing and a few other symptoms that typically can be mistaken for other illnesses such as a cold or allergies. The best check to decide if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if they subside once you are outdoors.
The next step toward enhancing air quality is inspecting for odors or damage in the items around your home. Walls and ceilings can become discolored and wood furniture can also warp or chip. There could also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to disappear. All of these items can indicate poor air quality in your home and can significantly impact your belongings.
