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

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Pacheco home. A lot of our exposure to impurities occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for better health. So what are some signals that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Pacheco, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for 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 impact your health; it may damage the things in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you could have poor indoor air quality.
