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

Air Quality

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Dallas home. Most of our exposure to contaminants takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital 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 reduced indoor air quality in Dallas, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host 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 problem.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it could 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 indicators that you might have poor indoor air quality.
