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

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Beaverton home. A lot of our exposure to impurities happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for great health. So what are some signs that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Beaverton, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

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