How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a deep breath and inhale. Feels good, doesn’t it? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your house? If so, you may be alarmed if you knew how many toxins you just pulled in, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…what? The EPA found in a survey that Americans spend 87% of their lives inside, and that indoor air pollutant levels are up to 100 times higher than levels outside of your home. Yikes! Now think about the fact that you breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And so does your family. So does your Pug. When it comes to food and water, it’s trendy to go organic or upgrade your faucet with the latest filter, but what about the air we breathe? Seriously, people, we can’t take indoor air quality for granted. Not anymore. It’s critical to take the time to assess quality of the air you breathe indoors. You’ll notice the following improvements: Reduce the negative impact on your health. That’s right.
