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 Humble home. A lot of our exposure to impurities occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for good health. So what are some indicators that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Humble, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it could damage the things in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you may have poor indoor air quality.
