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 Alice home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for good health. So what are some signs that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Alice, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it might damage the furniture 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 might have poor indoor air quality.
