Despite popular belief, the majority 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 ensure that our indoor air quality is the greatest it can be and confirm that our health will not be negatively impacted by what’s right in your home?
The first step to inspecting the indoor air quality of your residence is looking internally – how do you feel in your home? What physical symptoms do you experience indoors? Poor air quality can easily be acknowledged 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 check to see if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if they go away once you are outside of your home.
The next phase toward increasing air quality is inspecting for odors or damage in the items within your home. Walls and ceilings can become discolored and wood furniture can start to warp or chip. There could also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away. All of these factors can indicate poor air quality in your home and can seriously impact your belongings.
