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 within your own Anchorage home. The majority of our exposure to impurities happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for better health. So what are some signals that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Anchorage, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other illnesses 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 matter.

Odors and Damage

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