In the world we live in today, good indoor air quality is vitally important for people of all ages. This is particularly true because 90% of most people’s time is spent indoors. Those who live in homes with poor indoor air quality can develop respiratory problems, including allergies and asthma.
These health problems can become serious. The air inside a home can be affected by many factors, including dust, debris, and some sort of chemicals. People who are asthmatic, pregnant, elderly, very young and those with poor immune systems should make sure the indoor air quality of their homes is excellent.
Air in the home or office can be anywhere from 2 to 5 percent worse than the outdoor air and its pollutants, and people spend the vast majority of their time indoors, whether at school or at work or at home. Poor air quality inside can cause people, even those who are healthy, to struggle with their breathing and to develop lung problems if prolonged to poor air quality over lengthy times.
Respiratory diseases such as bronchitis and asthma are the most common problems associated with poor indoor air but there are others. Air purification and ventilation, regular maintenance on HVAC equipment and proper humidification can make a huge improvement in the quality of your indoor air.
