When thinking about air pollution, perhaps you’d immediately picture gases and particles from factories, vehicles, wildfires, mold spores, and dust. But do you know that indoor air can even be more polluted and harmful?
Not many people know that air pollution can still occur even when they’re indoors. There are pollutants inside the house or workplace that can contaminate the air, including cookstoves, tobacco smoke, office and craft supplies, glues, paint, dust mites, pet dander, pollen, and mold.If you think about it, the pollutants inside might just be greater than what you can see or get outside.
Considering that most people are now spending more time indoors because of the pandemic, impurified air inside can potentially harm your health in more ways than one. In that sense, indoor air quality maintenance is something you shouldn’t take for granted.
