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

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Mechanicsville home. Most of our exposure to impurities 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 crucial for great health. So what are some indicators that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Mechanicsville, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other ailments 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

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it may damage the items in your home.
