In the industrial era that we live in, our urban lifestyle is utterly different from that of rural. In cities and towns most of the people spend 90% of their daily time indoors than outdoors. Most of us are completely unaware that our indoor air could be polluted.
As stated, we spend 90% of our time indoors, relying on our HVAC systems to create a constant stream of healthy air.
INDOOR AIR QUALITY FACTS
- Research shows that 60% of commercial buildings in the cities have poor indoor air quality.
- According to the EPA, indoor pollution is approximately 2 to 5 times worse than that of outdoors.
- Particulate matter in indoor pollution inflames the airways and lungs of people working in commercial premises, causing allergic reactions and impairing breathing.
- 80% of citizens are exposed to indoor allergens, including dust mites that cause allergic reactions.
Our health is dependent on the quality of the indoor air that we breathe. The problem with indoor air pollution is that it is not visible to the naked eye, meaning the quality of air could be making the office staff sick without utility manager even knowing it. Despite the efforts of maintenance manager to maintain a clean and healthy office atmosphere, employees still may be getting sick because of invisible indoor pollutants.
Indoor Air Quality Testing is the best solution which can help you determine if the air you are breathing is making you sick!
