Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality

Every Canadian spends on average 90% of the time indoors with poor indoor air quality. Some people spend all of their time indoors. Unfortunately modern homes in Toronto, Mississauga or Richmond Hill have many substances that may be hazardous to our health. Among them minor irritants such as dust or animal dander and major irritants such as molds and chemicals. They may be emitted by modern building materials and furnishings thus creating poor indoor air quality. Some people are very sensitive to allergies and respiratory agents present in the indoor air.

INDOOR AIR CONTAMINANTS

Although people are mostly concerned about outdoor air pollution, they often do not realize that air they breathe inside their homes may be more hazardous to their health than outside air. With the increased use of synthetic materials and  chemical-based products in our homes the risk to our health has increased substantially. Mold is another major source of trouble, especially for people who suffer from allergies and asthma. Molds grow in damp conditions. They may be found outside the house as well as inside in the places like kitchens, bathrooms, walls and even carpets.
