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

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Oxford home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for great health. So what are some signals that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Oxford, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety 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 problem.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it may damage the things 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 may have poor indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
