The US Environmental Protection Agency did research that showed, on average, people spend about 90 percent of their time indoors. This means the majority of the air a person breathes comes from indoors. This means the air we breathe inside our homes and places of work can actually affect our health more than the air outside. So if you are worried about air quality outdoors, you should also be worried about air quality indoors. Air quality in your home is vital to your family’s health. Understanding what can be causing indoor air pollution in your home is important and learning effective ways to remove those pollutants.
