Why is indoor air quality important?
Air pollution levels are 2-5 times higher indoors than outdoors Indoor spaces are often filled with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chemicals that are released into the air from everyday products such as furniture.
People spend 90% of their time indoors Once airborne, VOCs are inhaled by occupants. As a result, people receive over 70% of their environmental exposure to chemicals indoors.
