Let's talk air quality

Do you have questions about air quality? We have answers!

Indoor air quality is one of the Environmental Protect Agency’s top 5 environmental health concerns. It’s not fun to hear, but the EPA states that the air inside your home is anywhere from 2 to 5 times dirtier than air outside (source). Scary, right?

However, don’t be afraid! There are plenty of air-quality solutions that exist today, such as humidifiers or purifiers. Using one of these can eliminate pollutants and get rid of pesky nuisances like bacteria, dust mites, mold, and mildew. Good indoor air quality is controlled by humidity and temperature.

The EPA has many resources for you to use regarding this topic. This guide provides information about mold in your home, and they also have an entire area of their site dedicated to indoor air quality in homes. Take a virtual tour of a house that the EPA has available online to help you learn about indoor air quality.
