Did you know that indoor air is often more contaminated than outdoor air? According to EPA studies, most modern homes are usually at least ten times more polluted than outside air, even in the smoggiest cities. Most of the problems are attributed to the way homes are built now. By improving energy efficiency, we have added several chemicals and materials that pollute our air. New homes are also built to be as air tight as possible, which creates stale air that is saturated with odors, chemicals and irritants.
The problems with new homes can lead to sinus congestion, eye irritation, sneezing, runny noses, colds, the flu, and various other respiratory aliments. The issue has become so serious that environmentalists have coined a new term for it, Indoor Air Quality, or IAQ.
