According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Franklin Lakes home. The majority of our exposure to contaminants 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 good health. So what are some signals that you may need to better your indoor air quality?
How You Feel
There are a number of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Franklin Lakes, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other problems 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 affect your health; it could damage the furniture in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you may have poor indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that never goes away.
