I did, and I was way off.

Alright, let’s see if you were off the mark too. Adults on average breathe about 17,000 to 30,000 breaths per day. Inhaling approximately 15,000 or more quarts of air per day. Did that take your breath away? Well, it should have, but more importantly, it should have made you think about the quality of the air you’re breathing in every day. Especially since it’s been estimated that you spend about 90% of your time indoors. Here are the facts you won’t believe about your home’s air quality.

1.) Indoor Air Quality Is A Health Risk

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, ranked Indoor Air Quality as one of the top five environmental risks to public health. The EPA has performed several studies, which prove that indoor air pollution is an issue for all types of homes. The most common sources of indoor air pollution are combustion sources, chemical products, organic matter, building materials, and outdoor pollution that makes its way into your indoor air.

2.) There Could Be Toxins In Your Home’s Furniture

Older furniture purchased before the mid- 2000’s may contain toxic chemicals such as PBDEs, or flame-retardants. These toxins have ways of making their way into our home’s air. So if you have older furniture, you may consider investing in some new furniture to better enhance your home’s indoor air. Is your bedroom a toxic breeding ground?

4.) Candles Release Harmful Chemicals

Candles are a great solution for many people, whether it be for ambiance, to create a relaxing environment or to remove some lingering odors from your home. Before you light up, you may want to think about the possible harmful chemicals it could be releasing into your home’s air. The EPA reported paraffin wax candles release small amounts of hazardous chemicals when burned. These chemicals include Acetaldehyde, formaldehyde, dioxins & furans, PAH (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons). When purchasing candles, the key is to look for soy or beeswax-based scented candles with only pure essential oils.

5.)  Indoor Air Pollutants Causing More Than Respiratory Issues

There are a number of indoor air pollutants including VOCs, phthalates, PBDEs, mold, pollen, pet dander, and other chemicals. These particles are easily inhaled by humans because of their small size and can create some symptoms when inhaled such as dry eyes, headaches, nasal congestion, fatigue, and even nausea. Health problems such as asthma, lung infections, or even lung cancer have been correlated with exposure to these pollutants.

6.) A Spike In Asthma Due to Air Pollutants

6.) A Spike In Asthma Due to Air PollutantsDo you know someone who suffers from asthma? Chances are you do. A study conducted in 2011 concluded that around 25 million Americans, or 1 in 12 people suffer from asthma. Especially in Pediatrics, the rate of pediatric asthma increased by 73 percent. Currently, asthma ranks as one of the most common conditions in the U.S. Many have pointed the finger at air pollutants for the increase in the amount of Americans who now suffer from asthma.

7.) Harmful Products In Your Home

There are several products you may be using in your home that could be releasing harsh toxins. Some of these products include cleaning products, personal care products, paint, and solvents. These toxins can cause dizziness, allergic reactions, skin irritation, cancer, and nausea. We recommend looking for non-toxic cleaning products and it is always best to read the ingredients on these products before using them to ensure they are not releasing toxins into yours home air.

8.) Your Indoor Air Is More Polluted Than Outdoor Air

After all of these unbelievable facts about your indoor air quality, would you believe that your indoor air is more polluted than your outdoor air? Well, it’s true, the EPA reported the level of indoor air pollution can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the worst outdoor air.
