about my home?
Indoor air problems tend to be less severe in homes
and apartments, usually because the ventilation is better,
but millions of homes around the country are thought
to be affected. Almost all of the indoor air problems
that plague office buildings in the U.S. can be found
in the average American home. Improper filtration and
inadequate ventilation only compound the problems caused
by furniture, carpet, cleansers, and pets. In fact,
a poor filtration system can take a contaminant that
originates in one part of the home and spread it throughout
your entire home. Often moisture and humidity issues
arise from a source within the building structure, creating
biological contaminant that must be addressed in order
to obtain adequate indoor air, as well as for occupants
to perceive a healthy indoor environment.
