The effect of not having good indoor air quality in the home is dramatic. The average person spends 90% of their time indoors and 70% of this time is spent in their own home. The indoor living environment is therefore crucial to the health of the occupants.
The modern home has become increasingly energy conscious. In order to save energy we have blocked chimneys, insulated, draught proofed, double glazed and progressively sealed our homes from an essential supply of fresh air.
This may save energy and make our homes more comfortable, however we pay the penalty by living in and breathing in this stale, contaminated, humid air for 70% of the time. That is why our homes are making us ill.
In addition to general moisture build-up created from washing, bathing, cooking and breathing, a large concoction of other pollutants and contaminants is present within the indoor air in our homes and at work. This is having a detrimental effect on our health and the fabric of our homes.
The effects of this poor air quality can lead to a number of ailments such as headaches, fatigue and respiratory illnesses. Even more harrowing, the World Health Organisation has recently published that the air we breathe in has become polluted with a mixture of cancer causing substances with 6 million people dying annually from exposure to indoor air and outdoor air pollution.
