Newer houses are constructed to avoid heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer — essentially “holding” the air inside. Trapping pollutants in homes is causing indoor air pollutant levels two to five times higher than the pollutant levels outdoors, according to estimates from The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Indoor air pollution is one of the top environmental and health concerns in the country. From pollen, mold and dust to animal dander and tobacco smoke, these indoor pollutants can create asthmatic and allergic reactions. We spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors, and having clean indoor air to breathe is essential.
