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

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Colorado Springs home. Most of our exposure to impurities happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for good health. So what are some signs that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Colorado Springs, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other problems 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 matter.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it may damage the things in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you might have poor indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that is always around.
