Why Does Indoor Air Quality Matter?

By in

The air quality of our indoor environments affects our health and often contributes to structural degradation and building failures within our homes.

Consider the Facts:

  1. According to the American Lung Association of Minnesota, elements within your home and workplace have been increasingly recognized as threats to your respiratory health.   The most common pollutants are radon, combustion products, biological (molds, pet dander, and pollen), volatile organic compounds, lead dust and asbestos.
  2. The Environmental Protection Agency lists poor indoor air quality as the 4th largest environmental threat to the United States.
  3. There are an estimated 40 million allergy sufferers in the United States.  Individuals who suffer from asthma, or have other respiratory illnesses may potentially be at a greater risk for health complications associated with poor indoor air quality in their homes.
  4. The prevalence rate of pediatric asthma has increased from 40.1% to 69.1%.  Asthma is the 6th ranking chronic condition in the nation and the leading chronic illness of children in the United States.
  5. Common housing problems or failures that occur in the home include:  musty odors and mold growth, window condensation, structural rot, peeling paint, back-drafting appliances, damp basements and ice dams, or build-up of ice on the roofs edge and high utility costs.
