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

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Crystal Lake home. Most of our exposure to contaminants takes place 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 better health. So what are some signals that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Crystal Lake, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it may damage the things in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you might have bad indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that never goes away.
