In order to Celebrate Cleaner Air, we must first understand what is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, air quality inside the home is often 2 to 5 times worse than the air outside. After certain activities such as painting or floor removal, the air in your home can be up to 1,000 times worse than the air outside. We know that having poor air quality (IAQ) has been tied to symptoms like irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and lungs, headaches, fatigue, and even trouble concentrating. Some of the factors include poor ventilation, problems controlling temperature, too much humidity or not enough. We can’t forget to mention dust from new construction, mold, cleaning supplies, and pesticides can cause poor IAQ.
