Indoor Air Quality

Why should you keep your home’s air clean?
Poor air quality can lead to poor health.

Pollutants in your home’s air can cause dizziness, headaches, nasal congestion and fatigue, plus they can aggravate allergies and asthma.

Causes of indoor air quality problems

Pollutants can come from many different sources inside and outside the home. For instance, furnishings, such as upholstery may release chemicals into the air. These pollutants circulate through ductwork, entering every room and living space. And if ventilation is inadequate, the pollutants multiply. High temperature and humidity also increase concentrations of some pollutants.

Do you see what’s wrong with this picture?

Just because you can’t see the problem doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

No home is immune to indoor air quality (IAQ) problems. All homes can contain elevated concentrations of dust, dirt and chemicals. These impurities may not be visible to the naked eye. Homes can also be breeding grounds for mold and mildew.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside the average home is up to five times more polluted than the air outside.*

 

Results from in-home air tests across North America support this government finding. Nearly every home (96%)** had at least one IAQ problem:

  • 86% had high levels of particles and bioaerosols like dust, pollen and viruses
  • 71% were filled with odors and potentially harmful chemicals and gases
  • 46% had problems with temperature and humidity
