Contrary to popular belief, most of our exposure to pollutants happens 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 make sure that our indoor air quality is the best it can be and ensure that our health will not be negatively impacted by what’s right in our home?
The first step to inspecting 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 acknowledged 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 measure to see 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 increasing air quality is examining for odors or damage in the items around your home. Walls and ceilings can appear discolored and wood furniture can start to warp or chip. There could 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 seriously impact your belongings.
