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

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Chatsworth home. A lot of our exposure to impurities occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for great health. So what are some signals that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Chatsworth, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified 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 issue.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it could damage the things in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you might have poor indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that is always around.
