According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Omaha home. Most of our exposure to pollutants occurs 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 better health. So what are some signals that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?
How You Feel
There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Omaha, for example: 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 go away when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality matter.
Odors and Damage
Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it may damage the items in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you could have poor indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that is always around.
