Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality

Posted on May 1st, 2015 by BlueMountain

Most people are under the assumption that outdoor air is more detrimental to our health than indoor air. Surprisingly, this is not the case. The EPA states that indoor air could contain pollutants may be 2 to 5 times and even as much as 100 times higher inside our homes than outdoors. Since people spend 90% of their time indoors, poor indoor air quality is a big problem.
