Blog 6 Indoor Air Quality

Published on 28 June 2024 at 20:11

When most people think of air pollution, they tend to focus more on external air pollution than internal air pollution. We spend a lot of time inside our homes, therefore interior quality is just as important as outdoor quality. We may be breathing in various contaminants such as paint, mold, smoke, and chemicals whether we are simply lounging around the house or even when we are asleep. Some people live in unsanitary conditions and chemically-laden environments, which contributes to their poor quality of air. Both a person's physical and emotional health may be impacted by this. Whether or not you believe your house is clean, people are unaware of all the nasty air that circulates it. Some people's homes are impacted by their smoking neighbors. Homes can easily contain carbon monoxide, which has the potential to kill someone covertly. There are numerous instances of indoor air quality issues, but there are solutions available, such as air purifiers, ventilation, and hiring an expert to inspect the air.
