According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Cambridge home. Most of our exposure to contaminants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for good health. So what are some signs that you may need to better your indoor air quality?
How You Feel
There are a variety of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Cambridge, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear 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 play a role in your health; it could damage the things in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you could have bad indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
