In spite of 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. Additionally, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are expended indoors. How can we make sure that our indoor air quality is the best it can be and make sure that our health will not be negatively impacted by what’s right in our home?
The first step to examining the indoor air quality of your home 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 can often be mistaken for other illnesses such as a cold or allergies. The best check to decide if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if they subside once you are outdoors.
The next stage toward improving air quality is inspecting for odors or damage in the items around your home. Walls and ceilings can appear discolored and wood furniture can also warp or chip. There may also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to disappear. All of these factors can indicate poor air quality in your home and can greatly impact your belongings.
