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 Tuscaloosa home. A lot of our exposure to impurities 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 crucial for great health. So what are some indicators that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Tuscaloosa, 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 vanish when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it might damage the things in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you may have poor indoor air quality.
