Indoor Air is Killing Us

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Americans spend about 90 percent of their time indoors,where the concentrations of some pollutants are up to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations. Indoor air quality is considered one of the top five environmental risks to health!

When you consider the simple fact we spend far more time inside than out, it makes sense to seriously consider what the quality of our indoor air is like. To that end, we'll take a look at some contaminants that are common in indoor air, and what you can do about some of them.

What Solid Contaminants?

Airborne particles, no matter how small, can represent a health hazard, particularly to those with conditions like asthma or seasonal allergies. Levels can vary from room to room, so it's best if you can sample the air in each space.

Here's a list of airborne solids provided by the EPA:

• Asbestos
• Lead
• Pollen
• Viruses
• Bacteria
• Dander
• Feces
• Urine proteins
• Mold Inorganics (silicates, dust)

Plan of Action


What is in your indoor air?
If you know what particles are in your air, you can take the most effective action. Testing kits can be used to sample your air, or you can hire a professional.

Our technology introduces a new option: automated, real-time sensing.

Where does it come from?
Did your dog bring ragweed pollen into the living room? Is there a slow leak under the sink that's providing the moisture that mold needs to thrive?

Put on your detective cap and find out where the crud is coming from!

Clean air, reduce particles.
If you learn that there are harmful particles floating in your indoor air, consider filtration.

Many of these particles can settle out of the air to be gathered with a HEPA vacuum cleaner, or an air purifier with a HEPA filter can also help.
