In spite of popular belief, the bulk 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. Additionally, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors. How can we ensure that our indoor air quality is the best it can be and make sure that our health will not be negatively impacted by what’s right in your home?
The first step to inspecting the indoor air quality of your house is looking internally – how do you feel in your home? What physical symptoms do you experience indoors? Poor air quality can easily be recognized through watery eyes, headaches, coughing, fatigue, sneezing and a few other symptoms that can often be mistaken for other illnesses such as a cold or allergies. The best gauge to see if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if you see them go away once you are outdoors.
The next phase toward improving air quality is examining for odors or damage in the items throughout your home. Walls and ceilings can become discolored and wood furniture can begin to 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 seriously impact your belongings.
