Have you ever wondered why fresh air feels so much nicer and cleaner than the air in your home? Well the answer is simply because it is. What most people, myself included, fail to realize is that the air you breathe most frequently: The air in your home, is filled with harmful gases, pollutants, dust mites, odors, and airborne diseases.
Indoor Air Quality is a term that did not exist just 75 years ago. This term is used to describe the quality of the air that you breathe during most of your day, indoor air. Recent developments in scientific research have discovered that the quality of indoor air is often three to five times worse than the air outside. When you stop and think about how much time you actually spend indoors, you realize how crucial it is to improve the air quality in your home. Now you may assume that pollutants in the air at home can be linked to asthma, allergies and breathing complications, such as bronchitis. While this is true, the medical community has recently established a direct link between harmful pollutants in the air in your home and heart attacks.
Dust and allergens aren't the only hazards that are present in indoor air, though. Mold spores, Tobacco smoke, pet allergens and dust mites can also be found in the air in your home. Mold spores are perhaps the most underrated threats to the personal well-being in any home. Tobacco smoke is also a very serious hazard that has potentially fatal consequences even for non-smokers. All of these substances can easily find their way into your home and cause serious harm to you and your family. These pollutants are no laughing matter and don't rest just because you've gone to sleep.
At this point you may be asking yourself: How do I improve the air quality in my home?
