Indoor air pollution is a growing public health hazard with negative effects on millions of people around the world. Research shows that it contributes to more than half of all illnesses including sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, asthma and more. Common indoor pollutants include dust, mold, pollen, rodent/insect remains and feces.
The average person spends approximately 90% of the time indoors, where pollutant levels are often two to five times higher than outdoors. The EPA has ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health.
