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 inside your own Hamilton home. The majority 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 good health. So what are some indicators 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 Hamilton, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as 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 matter.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it might damage the furniture 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 bad indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
