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 within your own Tucson home. The majority of our exposure to impurities takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for great health. So what are some signals that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Tucson, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it might damage the furniture in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you could have reduced indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that is always around.
