Despite popular belief, most 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 ensure that our indoor air quality is the highest it can be and make sure that our health will not be negatively impacted by what’s right in our house?
The first step to examining the indoor air quality of your home is looking internally – how do you feel in your home? What physical symptoms do you experience inside? Poor air quality can easily be identified through watery eyes, headaches, coughing, fatigue, sneezing and a few other symptoms that typically can 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 phase toward enhancing air quality is inspecting for odors or damage in the items within your home. Walls and ceilings can look discolored and wood furniture can start to warp or chip. There might also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to leave. All of these items can indicate poor air quality in your home and can greatly impact your belongings.
