Indoor Air Quality: Now, More than Ever
A major study of human activity patterns found that people in the US spend roughly 90 percent of their time indoors. It is safe to say that, in the age of COVID-19, that number is even higher.
Yet, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns that “studies of human exposure to air pollutants indicate that indoor levels of pollutants may be two to five times — and occasionally more than 100 times — higher than outdoor levels.” Common contaminants include smoke, dust mites, mold, radon, carbon monoxide, pet dander – even bacteria and viruses. Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of infections, lung cancer and chronic lung diseases such as childhood asthma.
