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 inside your own Sacramento home. A lot of our exposure to impurities 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 crucial for better health. So what are some indicators that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Sacramento, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other ailments such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear 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 may damage the things in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you might have poor indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
