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 in your own San Dimas home. Most of our exposure to pollutants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted 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 number of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in San Dimas, for example: 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 go away when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it may damage the things 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 reduced indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
