Contrary to popular belief, the majority of our exposure to pollutants occurs 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 consumed indoors. How can we check that our indoor air quality is the best it can be and confirm that our health will not be negatively impacted by what’s right in our home?
The first step to examining 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 identified 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 determine if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if they subside once you are away from your home.
The next step toward improving air quality is inspecting for odors or damage in the items throughout your home. Walls and ceilings can appear discolored and wood furniture can begin to warp or chip. There may also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away. All of these items can indicate poor air quality in your home and can seriously impact your belongings.
