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

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Safford home. Most of our exposure to impurities occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for good health. So what are some indicators 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 Safford, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it may damage the items in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you could have poor indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that never goes away.
