How prepared are you? How prepared do you need to be?
When it’s cold outside, it means the windows & doors at your home or place of work are shut to keep the heat in . . . and that means your indoor air quality (IAQ) worsens as well.
The air we breathe outside is normally far better than the air trapped indoors which can contain a variety of pollutants both chemical and biological, such as:
- carbon monoxide (CO)
- formaldehyde (HCHO)
- dust mites
There are also a number of health related issues associated with IAQ. Some mimic common cold & flu symptoms making their recognition difficult. These issues are only heightened for the medically fragile, persons with upper respiratory issues and environmentally sensitive individuals. Click here to learn more about your indoor air quality.
