In discussions of the danger of pollution, indoor air quality tends to be neglected. However, people spend a lot of time in their homes, and the air that they breathe in that environment may make all the difference in terms of their overall health.
People's furniture, interior paint, household cleaning chemicals, and appliances all might emit toxic pollutants into the air. People who suffer from respiratory issues such as asthma are more susceptible to reactions to poor indoor air quality. With that being said, many who have never exhibited signs of chronic respiratory issues could also be affected by poor air quality within their homes.
Addressing Problems With Indoor Air Quality
There are some great ways to improving your indoor air quality that are easier than you might think:
• Shop for furniture made without common indoor air quality hazards and cleaning supplies that are environmentally friendly.
• Buy a HEPA air filter or other indoor air filtration device that will help reduce interior toxins.
• Purchase a newer home that was built long after using lead paint, asbestos, and other toxins was common.
• Hire experts to test for the presence of toxic chemicals in a house.
