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

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Racine home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial 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 bad indoor air quality in Racine, 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 problem.
