In spite of popular belief, the bulk of our exposure to pollutants takes place 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. Also, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are consumed indoors. How can we check that our indoor air quality is the highest it can be and make sure that our health isn’t negatively impacted by what’s right in your home?
The first step to checking the indoor air quality of your house is looking internally – how do you feel in your home? What physical symptoms do you experience inside? Poor air quality can easily be recognized 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 check to determine if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if they go away once you are away from your home.
The next phase toward enhancing air quality is checking for odors or damage in the items within your home. Walls and ceilings can become discolored and wood furniture can start to warp or chip. There might also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to disappear. All of these items can indicate poor air quality in your home and can significantly impact your belongings.
