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

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Gresham home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants happens 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 good health. So what are some signs that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Gresham, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away 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 affect your health; it may damage the items in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you may have poor indoor air quality.
