Despite popular belief, the bulk 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. Plus, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors. How can we check that our indoor air quality is the highest it can be and confirm that our health isn’t negatively impacted by what’s right in our home?
The first step to checking the indoor air quality of your house 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 can often be mistaken for other illnesses such as a cold or allergies. The best measure to determine if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if they go away once you are outdoors.
The next phase toward enhancing air quality is inspecting for odors or damage in the items throughout your home. Walls and ceilings can appear discolored and wood furniture can start to warp or chip. There could 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.
