According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Libertyville 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 great health. So what are some signs that you may need to better your indoor air quality?
How You Feel
There are quite a few physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Libertyville, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other ailments 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 could damage the things in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, 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.
