The air quality in the home can impact our lives in many ways. Pollutants can effect air quality in several ways to include Particulate Matter and Gaseous Pollutants. Particulate matter includes dust, smoke, pollen, animal dander, tobacco smoke, particles generated from appliances and organisms like dust mites, molds, bacteria and viruses. Gaseous pollutants come from combustion processes such as gas cooking stoves, building materials, furnishings and common household items such as paint, varnishes, cleaning products and pesticides.
Most of us cannot see these air pollutants because they are smaller than 10 microns but these particles especially affect adults and children with allergies, asthma or suppressed immune systems. In fact a recent study conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that indoor exposure to harmful air pollutants could be up to 100 times greater than outdoors. The EPA now classifies indoor air quality as one of our most important environmental concerns. According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (part of the National Institute of Health), indoor airborne allergens and pollutants can trigger a wide range of symptoms.
