How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a big breath and relax. 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 inhaled, 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 you may find outside. Yikes! Now think about the fact that people breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And that means your family does, too. So does your furry friend.
