How to Tell If You Need to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Air Quality

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Bishop home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for good health. So what are some signals that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Bishop, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it could damage the items 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 could have bad indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
