The quality of the air you breath has a direct link to the quality of your health, so it is very important that the air in your home is clean, fresh, and odor-free.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), over the last several years, a large amount of scientific evidence has indicated that the air quality of the air in homes and other buildings today is likely more polluted than that of the air outside even in the largest and most industrialized cities.
The air inside your home most likely contains bacteria, viruses, allergens, and other harmful air particles that could be impacting your health.
According to the EPA, people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors.
Thus, for many individuals, the risk to health could be greater from being exposed to air pollution indoors than outdoors.
Individuals exposed to indoor air pollutants for long periods of time are the most susceptible to suffering from the harmful effects of indoor air pollution, so it is crucial not just to know your IAQ, but to improve it with the right air filters and purifiers.
If you don’t inspect your indoor air quality, it could become a threatening issue especially if you or someone in your home is an infant, an elderly person, or chronically ill with respiratory or cardiovascular disease.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and its Science Advisory Board has consistently ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risk to public health.
Poor indoor air quality can lead short and long term effects like asthma, allergies, illness, and can be severely debilitating and in some cases fatal. Both education and preventative actions can help decrease the risk of suffering from poor indoor air quality.
For example, preventative maintenance like regularly changing your air filters can greatly decrease the chance of experiencing poor indoor air quality. Installing a new air purification system or upgrading your filtration system are the best ways to improve the air in your home or business.
