Despite 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 spent indoors. How can we check that our indoor air quality is the best it can be and ensure that our health isn’t 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 when you are indoors? Poor air quality can easily be acknowledged through watery eyes, headaches, coughing, fatigue, sneezing and a few other symptoms that may be mistaken for other illnesses such as a cold or allergies. The best check to see if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if you see them go away once you are outdoors.
The next step toward improving air quality is examining for odors or damage in the items throughout your home. Walls and ceilings can appear discolored and wood furniture can begin to warp or chip. There may also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away. All of these factors can indicate poor air quality in your home and can significantly impact your belongings.
