When it comes to keeping your house safe and clean, indoor air quality probably isn’t one of the first things that comes to mind – but it’s certainly one of the most important. Are you doing enough to maintain healthy and clean indoor air in your home?
How to Improve Indoor Air Quality
Most people are aware of outdoor air pollution. It gets a lot of attention and scrutiny from the media and general public. But what if someone told you that indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air?
Over the past few years, the EPA reports that multiple studies indicate air within homes and other buildings is more dangerous than outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized urban areas.
“Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors,” the EPA explains.
