How can I test the air quality of my apartment?

I believe there is a problem with the air quality in my apartment. I dust sticky film off of my furniture and plants weekly and have been having sinus issues consistently since I moved in several months ago. I've contacted state and city EPA to get information and possible testing, but have not gotten a reply after 2 months. Looking online, I can only buy expensive devices that each test for one specific chemical/substance, but I would have to know what I'm looking for.

Any advice?

Attached is a guide to indoor air quality and various ways of testing. Hopefully, this helps with determining how you want to proceed. Also, here is a link to one possibility for doing the testing yourself: aiha.org/news-pubs/newsroom/Documents/Is Air Quality a Problem in My Home.pdf
