Most people spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors.
But indoor air quality can be up to five times worse than outdoor air, which can have a very detrimental impact on your health.
For example, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), poor indoor air quality can cause or exacerbate:
- Asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems
- Eye and skin irritations
- Sore throat, colds and flu
- Memory loss, dizziness, fatigue and depression
Long-term effects from exposure to toxic airborne particles include heart disease, respiratory disease, reproductive disorders, sterility and even cancer.
