Did you know that your indoor air quality is an extremely important part of staying healthy? Research shows that your indoor air quality can be up to 10x worse than outdoor air quality. The EPA even rates indoor air pollution as one of the Top 5 environmental risks to public health.
Poor indoor air quality in your home and workplace can affect your health, comfort, and well-being, which leads to chronic health problems and reduced productivity. Poor air quality in schools can even impair learning.
