According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans stay indoors about 90 percent of the time, and as safe as the proposition may sound for those who stay indoors, statistics bear that indoor air in people’s may turn out not quite that safe at all. EPA reveals that indoor air can turn out five times more polluted than outside air. These pollutants that circulate in people’s homes today may contain dust allergens, as well as substances like lead, formaldehyde, fire retardants, and radon.
Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can make you sick so it’s important to maintain air quality in your home. IAQ refers to the quality of the atmosphere inside a building, and broadly encompasses various aspects that make one’s home feel comfortable and the air healthy: temperature, humidity, and the level of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) diffused inside the room.
