Indoor Air Pollution

Indoor air pollution is often more harmful than outdoor air pollution, because we spend more time indoor, in homes and offices. They can be much more polluted compared to outdoor air, and thus present a major health threat.
In order to reduce heating costs many people try to make their homes and offices more airtight which often leads to inadequate circulation of the air and high levels of indoor air pollution that could have adverse effects on human health. Indoor air pollution is particularly hazardous to elderly people and young children, and can not only lead to respiratory diseases like asthma but also cause heart problems.
Because we spend approximately 90% of our time indoors, the quality of indoor air is certainly one of the main prerequisites of the healthy life. We need to pay more attention on the quality of air we breathe in our homes and offices.
Indoor air pollution is yet to be widely recognized issue and there has been very little scientific data about emission rates from different appliances we use in our home and offices. There also hasn't been adequate regulation on indoor pollutants that would regulate the acceptable level of indoor air emissions.

Yes! I certainly agree. Air pollution that is found inside our house is more dangerous. These are molds, chemicals, dust, bacteria, fumes, and many more. In order to cut the amount of air pollution, it’s very important to have plants inside and put charcoal on almost every corner of the house in order to purify the air we inhale.
