Dirty Indoor Air
- Myth: Dirty air is something that happens near factories and along interstates, not in our own homes.
- Fact: Indoor air can become many times more polluted than the air outside.
Environmental and health agencies consider indoor air pollution to be a major worry. In the U.S., buildings are made tight to prevent conditioned air from escaping and to save energy. Unfortunately, this also traps particulates and contaminants inside. These come from cooking, pollen, pet dander, smoking, hygiene products, cleaning sprays, off-gassing from carpets and furniture, and other sources.
Without plenty of fresh air coming in, the air becomes stale and contaminated. You can use ventilation fans, cut back on aerosols and other sprays, vacuum frequently and open the windows, but you may need better solutions.
