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 in your own Bountiful home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants takes place 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 improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Bountiful, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other problems 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

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it may 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 could have bad indoor air quality.
