Indoor Air Pollution

indoor air pollution

Air pollution isn't just a problem found outdoors, as we continue to make improvements to our homes to ensure they are energy efficient we are also affecting the quality of the air that we inhale. According to the World Health Organisation, over 4.3 million people die each year from the exposure to indoor air pollution. By sealing up our homes we are breathing in a concoction of indoor air pollutants. 

Indoor air pollution consists of:

  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) created from the use of aerosols and formaldehydes found in furniture and carpets.
  • Carbon monoxide from smoking, heating and cooking appliances
  • Humidity which is created from living our daily lives of cooking, showering, washing and ironing.
  • Toxic mould spores found in household dust.
  • Odours from cooking and household pets.
  • Allergens from house dust mites.
  • Carbon dioxide from household appliances and people.
  • Hazardous carcinogenic chemicals from bleach, cleaning products and fabric softener.

Children, asthma sufferers and the elderly are especially sensitive to indoor air pollution, but other effects on health may appear years later, after continuous exposure.
