According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Rockford home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for better health. So what are some signals that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?
How You Feel
There are a number of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Rockford, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality matter.
Odors and Damage
Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it might damage the things in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you might have bad indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
