According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Wausau home. Most of our exposure to contaminants takes place 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 better health. So what are some signs that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?
How You Feel
There are a variety of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Wausau, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other problems 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 matter.
Odors and Damage
Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it may damage the items in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you could have bad indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that is always around.
