The air in today’s tightly sealed, well-insulated homes and offices can become stale as it recirculates. When you take into account all the dust, pollen, pet dander, allergens, mold, bacteria, chemical vapors, viruses and even skin flakes that come into play on a daily basis, it’s easy to understand why interior air can be up to five times filthier than that on the outside.
According to the EPA: “In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.”
