Everyone loves a clean-smelling home. But did you know that the air inside your home may be polluted, even if it seems fresh? Invisible micro particles are deposited into your home’s air every time you use household cleaners, bring home new purchases, or build a fire in the wood stove or fireplace. And far worse than simply smelling less-than-fresh, these pollutants can actually make you sick.
Your Home’s Air Can Make You Sick
There is a growing body of evidence showing that indoor air quality may even be worse than outdoor air, even in the most polluted cities! Since people spend around 90% of their time indoors, this is a major concern. The negative side effects of poor indoor air quality range from increased risk of asthma in children and heart disease in adults to reduced cognitive function.
The Indoor Pollutants that Make People Sick
Every home probably has more than one pollutant that brings down air quality. The list of allergens and irritants is long, but one major culprit is household cleaners. The fragrances used in everyday cleaners are released with every spritz, so while your counter tops and sinks are cleaner, your air is actually more polluted every time you clean.
Another source of indoor air pollution is new household purchases. Items like mattresses, carpets, furniture, or new paint can contain harsh pollutants that “off gas” into your home when new.
Then there’s radon, formaldehyde, lead, and fire retardant pollution to worry about, too.
