Better Air, Better Health: Why is Indoor Air Quality Important?
As our homes become more energy efficient and “airtight,” by taking care of those leaky windows and air ducts, a side effect can be poor air quality. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air is typically 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Indoor air pollutants can include:
Mold and mildew.
Pet dander and pollen.
Airborne viruses and bacteria.
Fumes from household chemicals.
Carbon monoxide and lead particles.
These pollutants can cause health issues and allergic reactions, and over time can cause headaches, fatigue, memory lapse, and respiratory problems, especially among children.
