It’s important to pay attention to indoor air quality because the time we spend at home, at work, and/or at school adds up. People spend a majority of their time indoors which creates repeated exposure to indoor air pollutants. In fact, according to the EPA, people spend 90 percent of their time indoors and 72 percent of that time is at home. Ironically, the place we consider to be the safest space is the place where we are most exposed to harmful pollutants.
These harmful pollutants come from activities, products and materials such as home improvement products, household cleaning products, etc. we use every day. The air in our homes, schools and offices can be 2 to 5 times more polluted, and in some cases 100 times more polluted, than outdoor air.
Combine these two factors and you are constantly breathing in pollutants that can agitate your allergies, cause headaches, breathing issues, and more. Therefore, indoor air quality products can vastly improve the quality of your health, comfort, and living environment.
