Indoor Air Quality

What Causes Indoor Air Quality Problems?

The primary causes of indoor air quality problems in homes today are from gases and particles being released from various sources of air pollutants. Unfortunately, some of these risks are purely unavoidable, because to avoid them would change the way we choose to live our lives. While on the other hand, some risks we might avoid if we had the insight to avoid them.  Samples of these air pollutants might include but are not limited to; cleaning products, personal care products, tobacco products, building materials, pesticides and range to biological contaminants such as: bacteria, molds, mildew, viruses, animal dander and cat saliva, house dust mites, cockroaches, and pollen.

The relative importance of any single source depends on how much of a given pollutant it emits and how hazardous those emissions are. In some cases, factors such as how old the source is and whether it is properly maintained are significant.  Clearly, each and every one of us to some degree faces exposure to air pollutants as we go about our daily routines.

Scientific evidence over the past several years has indicated that the air in our homes can be more seriously polluted than the air outdoors. Below are several product models that can help alleviate and minimize your exposure to such pollutants. For more information on Indoor Air Quality, please visit
