Indoor Air QualityIndoor air quality is a top concern for many homeowners. Most people are aware that outdoor air pollution can damage their health but may not know that indoor air pollution can also have significant harmful effects. U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies of human exposure indicate that the levels for many pollutants may be 2-5 times higher indoors than outdoors. High levels of indoor air pollutants are significant because it is estimated that people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors. Over the past several decades, our exposure to indoor air pollutants has increased due to a variety of factors, including the construction of well-sealed buildings, reduced ventilation rates, the use of synthetic building materials and furnishings, and the use of chemically formulated personal care products, pesticides, and household cleaners.
