Polluted indoor air can lead to allergies, asthma attacks, headaches, other health worries. A study conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency found that indoor air could actually be more polluted than outdoor air. Considering that most individuals spend up to 90 percent of each day indoors–more than half of that time at home–you may be experiencing indoor air pollution without even knowing it.
Today, homes are sealed more tightly to conserve energy. Unfortunately, this seals in mold, pollen, bacteria and other pollutants. And since the U.S. EPA ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health, many homeowners are concerned. Fortunately, there’s a solution to most indoor air quality problems.
