    The Importance of Clean Air in the Home

    You Drink Fresh Water. Why Not Breathe Fresh Air?
    Doctors and health experts suggest you should drink approximately two quarts of water every day to maintain optimum body conditions. And in response, over $7 billion dollars and climbing is spent annually on bottled water.

    By comparison, you inhale approximately 15,000 (or more) quarts of air each day. While drinking clean water is absolutely important, shouldn't breathing clean air be important to maintain a healthy lifestyle?

    Is Indoor Air Pollution a Real Problem?
    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental dangers to the public and identifies it as one of the leading health risks today. The EPA estimated that pollution levels indoors could be two to five higher than the pollution levels outdoors. And on occasion, indoor air can be as much as 100 times more polluted.

    Why the Increase in Indoor Air Pollution?
    The quality of indoor air has substantially deteriorated over the last 30 to 40 years, and it has occurred because of how homes are now constructed. Today, homes are sealed much tighter, and air cannot escape. So, the air inside your home stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer. "Tight homes" are more energy efficient, but they also lock in allergens, toxins, and infectious agents.

    How Dangerous is Indoor Air Pollution?
    Research studies have found that more people today feel less healthy than at any other time. Also, more people suffer from asthma, allergies, and other respiratory diseases than ever before. Why? Because people over that last 30 to 40 years have been breathing an increasing amount of damaging particles while indoors.

    According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, children are extremely vulnerable to these damaging particles found inside homes. As an infant, you breathe in these particles. Rather than exhaling them out, they embed themselves into your lungs and absorb into your blood stream. Once absorbed, they do not leave your body. Instead, they build up throughout adulthood in your body.

    These dangerous particles have been blamed for the irritations you may get in your eyes, nose, and throat. They produce headaches, fatigue, and occasionally nausea. In extreme cases, due to long-term exposure, they've been suspected of causing damage to your liver, kidneys, and central nervous system.
