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 inside your own West Jefferson home. Most of our exposure to contaminants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for better health. So what are some signs that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

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

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it might damage the furniture in your home.
