According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Shelby home. The majority of our exposure to impurities 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 vital for good health. So what are some indicators that you may need to better your indoor air quality?
How You Feel
There are quite a few physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Shelby, such as: 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 disappear when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality matter.
Odors and Damage
Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it might damage the furniture 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 may have reduced indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that is always around.
