What Is Air Quality?
EPA Information on Indoor Air Quality:
- Indoor air is often 100 times more polluted than outdoor air
- There are many pollutant sources that can be trapped inside your home
- People can become sensitized to biological and chemical pollutants after repeated exposures
- Asthma has increased over 100% in the past decade and is linked to poor indoor air quality
- Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels
What’s in Your Air?
Clean air is fundamental for a healthy home. But, how do you how clean it really is? Air quality testing can be conducted to produce precise, detailed reports of what’s in the air your breathing.
Poor Air Quality and Potential Health Risks
Poor indoor air quality quality can negatively impact everyone’s health. It may cause those affected to experience hypersensitivities, skin issues, asthma and other breathing issues. As indicated by the branch of Consumer Affairs, children are most influenced by contaminated air. They inhale more rapidly, breathe in more air per unit of body weight and are nearer to the ground, where the convergences of contaminates are higher.
