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 Payson home. The majority of our exposure to impurities takes place 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 great health. So what are some signs that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Payson, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it may damage the items in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you could have poor indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
