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 Lake Forest home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants takes place 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 good health. So what are some signals that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Lake Forest, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host 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 may be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it could damage the items 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 could have poor indoor air quality.
