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

October 24, 2016

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Lafayette home. The majority of our exposure to impurities 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 vital for great 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 reduced indoor air quality in Lafayette, 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 go away when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality matter.
