How to Tell If You Need to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Air Quality

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Richardson 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 crucial for great health. So what are some indicators that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

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

Odors and Damage

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