According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Newark home. Most of our exposure to pollutants takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted 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 improve your indoor air quality?
How You Feel
There are quite a few physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Newark, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away 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 play a role in your health; it might damage the things in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you could have reduced indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that is always around.
