How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a deep breath and inhale. Feels good, right? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your home? If so, you may be alarmed if you had an idea of how many toxins you just pulled in, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…is that true? The EPA found in a survey that Americans spend 87% of their lives indoors, and that indoor air pollutant levels are up to 100 times higher than levels outside of your home. Yikes! Now think about the fact that people breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And so do your kids. So does your Pug. When it comes to what we consume, it’s trendy to go organic or fit your faucet with the latest filter, but how about the air we breathe? Honestly, people, indoor air quality isn’t a given. Not anymore. It’s important to take a look at the quality of the air you breathe indoors. Doing so can: Reduce the negative impact on your health. That’s right.
