How to Tell If You Need to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Baltimore home. A lot of our exposure to impurities 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 vital for good health. So what are some signs that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Baltimore, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it could damage the items in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you might have bad indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that never goes away.
