Poor indoor air quality can lead to serious health risks if not resolved. Studies have shown that we Americans spend 90% of our time indoors. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside our homes can be two to five times more polluted than the outside air. With the stringent building codes over the last few decades the average home is much tighter, meaning less air exchange of fresh outdoor air with the indoor air, leading to higher levels of contaminants in our homes.
