The Importance of Having Good Indoor Air Quality for Your Home

Being constantly exposed to smog, harmful gasses, and dust, you might think that most pollutants that affect your health come from the outside environment. Although it is a fact that the condition of the air outside has gotten worse over the years, the air quality inside your home can also be an additional factor that is affecting your health.

Just because you have escaped from the polluted environment outside, does not mean that you have freed yourself from all these pollutants. 90 percent of your daily activity is done at home, it is where you sleep, eat, rest, and even commune with your family after a long day. The terms "safety" or "refuge" usually refer to the environment of a home however, the home can also be a source of generating health risks – especially when it comes to air quality.

Air is present everywhere; even when the windows and doors are closed shut, it manages to travel from one room to another. Because of its expansive coverage, the air can become hazardous when pollutants add themselves to the mix. These pollutants can be brought in by the air outside or by the activities and items of the household.
