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 Alliance home. Most of our exposure to pollutants 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 essential for good health. So what are some indicators that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Alliance, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other illnesses 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 things in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you could have poor indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that is always around.
