According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own McHenry home. Most of our exposure to pollutants takes place 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 signs that you may need to better your indoor air quality?
How You Feel
There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in McHenry, 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 vanish when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality problem.
Odors and Damage
Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it may damage the furniture in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you might have bad indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that is always around.
