Clean Air = Happy Holiday
Indoor air pollution is one of the top 5 public health hazards.
This winter, families will spend more time snuggled into their homes. You are probably aware of harmful pollution outside, but did you know that your indoor air has the potential to be even more dangerous?
90% of your time – and your family’s – is spent indoors. Dust mites, molds, mildew, viruses and allergens increase the likelihood or irritate certain health conditions. With today’s tightly sealed, well-insulated homes, the air inside your home can be 5 times more polluted than outside. For children and the elderly, this is especially dangerous.
Irritated eyes, nose and throat are some of the first indicators of poor indoor air quality. Dust or dirt around heating or air vents, on ceilings or stained walls should alert you that there is a problem.
Do what you can to reduce indoor pollutants – no indoor smoking, use air-friendly cleaning supplies and keep pets groomed. Invest in high quality filters for your home comfort system. Also, get an indoor air survey from a professional.
