You take about 24,000 breaths every day. So it only makes sense to spend a few seconds thinking about what you’re actually breathing. After all, allergens, pollution, mold, bacteria, cleaning chemicals, smoke and more all hurt the quality of your air.
Your home is home to more than you think: Chances are you have billions of unwanted guests living in your home. This doesn’t even include all the little air pollutant inhabitants you can’t see like pet dander, bacteria, viruses, skin flakes, chemical fumes, pollen and more. It’s time to take control of your home’s air quality. Incredible as it sounds, the Environmental Protection Agency has found that indoor levels of air pollutants are often higher than outdoor air levels. Ironically, today’s tightly-sealed, well-insulated homes only make the problem worse, as the same stale, contaminated indoor air is circulated and re-circulated.
What You Need To Know About Indoor Air Quality In Your Home: The EPA discovered in a survey that Americans spend 87% of their lives inside their home or a building, and that indoor air pollutant levels are up to 100 times higher than pollution levels found outside. Wow! Now think about the fact that you take about 24,000 breaths every single day. So do your kids and the family pets.
American Lung Association: Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to infections, lung cancer, chronic lung disease and is the cause of 94% of respiratory illness. In addition it can cause headache, dry-eyes, nasal congestion, nausea, and fatigue. EPA Lists poor indoor air quality as the fourth largest environmental threat to our country.
