According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Ballwin and St. Charles home. The majority of our exposure to impurities happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for better health. So what are some indicators that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

There are a number of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Ballwin and St. Charles, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality matter.
