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 Cottonwood home. Most of our exposure to pollutants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for better health. So what are some signs 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 Cottonwood , such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it might damage the items in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you may have bad indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
