Our homes (and offices) are full of chemicals. Chemicals are commonly used in the construction materials, our furniture, flooring materials, household cleaning products etc – and that’s just a start. Other issues are molds, fungus, off-gases produced from heating systems, cigarette smoke, cooking odors, dust, dust mites and more.

According to the EPA: In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air, especially in the largest and most industrialized cities.

Research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater indoors due to exposure to air pollution than outdoors. (EPA Document # 402-k-93-007, April 1995)

When indoor air pollution levels are high enough to be dangerous and expensive attempts through conventional air filtration methods have failed, the building is classified as “sick building”.

However, it’s the people inside that get sick – not the building!
