Contrary to popular belief, most 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. Also, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are consumed indoors. How can we make sure that our indoor air quality is the greatest it can be and make sure that our health is not being negatively impacted by what’s right in your home?
The first step to examining the indoor air quality of your residence is looking internally – how do you feel in your home? What physical symptoms do you experience inside? 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 measure to see if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if you see them go away once you are outside of your home.
The next phase toward enhancing air quality is checking for odors or damage in the items within your home. Walls and ceilings can appear discolored and wood furniture can start to warp or chip. There may also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to leave. All of these factors can indicate poor air quality in your home and can greatly impact your belongings.
