According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) we are exposed to risks everyday. EPA studies of human exposure to air pollutants indicate that indoor air levels of many pollutants may be 2-5 times, and on occasion more than 100 times, higher than outdoor levels. These levels of indoor air pollutants are of particular concern because it is estimated that most people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors.
Indoor air pollution is one risk that you can do something about.
• Asthma afflicts about 20 million Americans, including 6.8 million children
• 14 million school days missed each year
Animal dander, dust and other volatile organic compounds, (VOC), are found indoors.
Everyone likes the smell of ‘fresh’ air, but, when you open the windows you are introducing pollutants and allergens into your home.
Air filters remove most of the particulates and VOC’s.
