Why is Indoor Air Quality important?

The Problem

Most of our time is spent indoors where there are many types of air pollution: consumer products, appliances, building materials, cigarette smoke, and furniture can all contribute to the problem.

The Environmental Protection Agency ranked indoor air pollution fourth in cancer risk among 13 top environmental problems analyzed. Indoor radon gas was at the top of this list. A lot relates to the problem of indoor air quality problems. First of all, we spend most of our time indoors. Because many pollutants are found indoors we all inhale them everyday. Secondly, indoor air pollution is often higher than those outdoors. The EPA has said indoor levels of pollutants, such as formaldehyde, chloroform, and styrene, range from 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor levels. Exposure to pollutants such as cigarette smoke is usually indoors.

Indoor air pollution consists of toxic gases or particles that can harm your health. These pollutants can build up rapidly indoors to levels much higher than those usually found outdoors. This is especially true if large amounts of a pollutant are released indoors. Additionally, the better construction in newer homes can prevent pollutants from escaping to the outdoors.


Facts
  • According to the EPA, the air inside your home may be 10 times more polluted than the air outside.
  • More than half -- 55% -- of the US population is breathing unhealthy amounts of air pollution according to the American Lung Associationís State of the Air, 2004.
  • According to the American Lung Association, 20.3 million Americans are currently battling asthma.
  • Today, some 50 million Americans suffer from at least one allergic condition according to American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology. These allergies are responsible for $15 billion in medical costs and an estimated 10 million lost school days and 3.5 million lost workdays each year.
  • Asthma cases have increased by more than 100% since 1976. 
  • About 1 in 9 children now have asthma. 
  • Death rates due to asthma have tripled, and quintupled in children ages 5 to 9, since 1976. 
  • Hospitalization rates and doctor visits are still continuing to increase dramatically. 
  • According to the American College of Allergies, 50% of all illness is aggravated or caused by polluted indoor air.
  • Today's homes and buildings are built air-tight, and contain a long list of pollution sources (see list). As a result, natural air-cleansing agents such as ozone and negative ions are kept out, while contaminants are kept in. A recent study found that the allergen level in super-insulated homes is 200% higher than it is in ordinary homes.
  • According to Scientific America, a baby crawling on the floor inhales the equivalent of 4 cigarettes a day, as a result of the outgassing of carpets, molds, mildews, fungi, dust mites, etc.
  • The EPA informs us that 6 out of 10 homes and buildings are "sick", meaning they are hazardous to your health to occupy as a result of airborne pollutants.
  • High levels of microscopic, soot-like particles are increasing the risk of premature death for millions of people, including those with heart or lung disease, according to the American Lung Association State of the Air: 2004.
  • Sick Building Syndrome, a worldwide phenomenon, results when chemical substances used in office construction are steadily released into the atmosphere from electronic equipment, carpeting, furniture and fittings.
  • Virus, fungus, bacteria and hundreds of other germs are carried in the air at all times. If inhaled into the lungs, germs can cause cold, flu, pneumonia and other respiratory infections. When these germs lodge in your lungs, your breathing can be disrupted and you can become ill. American Lung Association
  • Indoor air pollutants can cause asthma attacks, as well as itchy eyes, sneezing and runny nose. Radon and tobacco smoke can cause even more dangerous health effects, including lung cancer, according the American Lung Association
  • Strong new evidence suggests that air pollution emitted by power plants and vehicles across the U.S. raises the risk of lung disease, according to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Our Web site endeavors to provide you, our customer, with the knowledge necessary to understand the complicated issues of indoor air pollution and its remedies. Much of the dangers found in our homes and places of work often can't be seen and may have no detectable odor, unfortunately these silent invaders are responsible for all types of allergies and disease, which for many results in a poor quality of life and sometimes even death. Few of us realize that items such as laundry and dishwasher detergent, polishes, paints, wood based building material, carpets, cosmetics, etc., generate measurable air pollutants.

Listed below are the categories that pollutants fall into:

1. Particulates: dust, smoke, etc.

2. Bioaerosols: micro-organisms such as viruses, bacteria, mold, etc..

3. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): chemical or odor causing gases etc.

Click on the above pages for more detail and definitions.

Of the three categories of contaminants mentioned above, the Center for Disease Control has reported that bio-aerosols and volatile organic compounds combine for over 65% of our indoor air pollution and are the main contributors or causes of allergies, asthma, respiratory problems and general poor health.

Is air pollution being produced and distributed in your home?

Unfortunately, often the answer is yes.

Just as uncontrolled industrial processes can foul the air outside, many of industrial products, wonderful as they are, can contribute to air pollution in our homes. The process of cooking, as well as heating and cooling our homes, can also add to indoor pollution.

And this pollution can be trapped indoors. In past years, our need to save energy encouraged us to conserve it where we could. So we made our houses airtight, adding storm windows and insulation. We applied weather stripping and caulking to seal cracks, and have increasingly turned to kerosene, wood and coal to help heat our homes. However, we have often ignored the effects of these measures on indoor air quality. As a result, researchers have found air pollution can be much greater inside the home than outside.

On average we spend about 90 percent of our time indoors - out of that 90 percent, 65 percent is spent at home. The people who are especially susceptible are the very ones who spend the most time at home. Children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with lung disease -- these become the major victims of indoor air pollution.

What's worse, like so much air pollution, many of the contaminating substances give no warning and produce vague and sometimes similar symptoms that are hard to pin down to a specific cause or produce symptoms years later, when it's even harder to discover the cause. Based on research already done on industrial and outdoor air pollution, and more recent research on a variety of indoor pollutants, we can identify many harmful substances.

We know the effects they can have and many of their sources. In many circumstances, we can take responsibility for the quality of air in our own homes.
What Causes Indoor Air Problems?

Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems in homes. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the home. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.

Health Effects of Biological Pollutants
All of us are exposed to biological pollutants. However, the effects on our health depend upon the type and amount of biological pollution and the individual person. Some people do not experience health reactions from certain biological pollutants, while others may experience one or more of the following reactions:
  • Allergic
  • Infectious
  • Toxic
Except for the spread of infections indoors, ALLERGIC REACTIONS may be the most common health problem with indoor air quality in homes. They are often connected with animal dander (mostly from cats and dogs), with house dust mites (microscopic animals living in household dust), and with pollen. Allergic reactions can range from mildly uncomfortable to life-threatening, as in a severe asthma attack. Some common signs and symptoms are:
  • Watery eyes
  • Runny nose and sneezing
  • Nasal congestion
  • Itching
  • Coughing
  • Wheezing and difficulty breathing
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
Health experts are especially concerned about people with asthma. These people have very sensitive airways that can react to various irritants, making breathing difficult. The number of people who have asthma has greatly increased in recent years. The number of people with asthma has gone up by 59 percent since 1970, to a total of 9.6 million people. Asthma in children under 15 years of age has increased 41 percent in the same period, to a total of 2.6 million children. The number of deaths from asthma is up by 68 percent since 1979, to a total of almost 4,400 deaths per year.

INFECTIOUS DISEASES caused by bacteria and viruses, such as flu, measles, chicken pox, and tuberculosis, may be spread indoors. Most infectious diseases pass from person to person through physical contact. Crowded conditions with poor air circulation can promote this spread. Some bacteria and viruses thrive in buildings and circulate through indoor ventilation systems. For example, the bacterium causing Legionnaire's disease, a serious and sometimes lethal infection, and Pontiac Fever, a flu-like illness, have circulated in some large buildings.

Indoor Air and Your Health
Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later. Immediate effects may show up after a single exposure or repeated exposures. These include irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. Such immediate effects are usually short-term and treatable. Sometimes the treatment is simply eliminating the person's exposure to the source of the pollution, if it can be identified. Symptoms of some diseases, including asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, and humidifier fever, may also show up soon after exposure to some indoor air pollutants.

The likelihood of immediate reactions to indoor air pollutants depends on several factors. Age and preexisting medical conditions are two important influences. In other cases, whether a person reacts to a pollutant depends on individual sensitivity, which varies tremendously from person to person. Some people can become sensitized to biological pollutants after repeated exposures, and it appears that some people can become sensitized to chemical pollutants as well.

Certain immediate effects are similar to those from colds or other viral diseases, so it is often difficult to determine if the symptoms are a result of exposure to indoor air pollution. For this reason, it is important to pay attention to the time and place the symptoms occur. If the symptoms fade or go away when a person is away from the home and return when the person returns, an effort should be made to identify indoor air sources that may be possible causes. Some effects may be made worse by an inadequate supply of outdoor air or from the heating, cooling, or humidity conditions prevalent in the home.

Other health effects may show up either years after exposure has occurred or only after long or repeated periods of exposure. These effects, which include some respiratory diseases, heart disease, and cancer, can be severely debilitating or fatal. It is prudent to try to improve the indoor air quality in your home even if symptoms are not noticeable.
