Surprisingly, about 90 percent of our time is spent indoors; at work, undoubtedly in recreational facilities, and at home. Many people take for granted that the air they breathe is safe – but is it really? There is far too much evidence proving that poor indoor air quality can have a bad effect on health and it can worsen the health for those who may already suffer from respiratory ailments such as asthma. We may not have the power to control the indoor air quality at work or at the gym, most importantly but in our homes we can have control over what we choose to breathe in.

Moisture promotes mold and dampness is one of the most common causes of poor indoor air in homes across the U.S. Mold is basically fungus that grows in damp areas or on food. In some cases it may not even be visible to the naked eye but it may have a musty odor. Mold reproduces by spores that are released into the air, most importantly they are so small they are breathed in without us even knowing it. Some of the health problems caused by mold include:
- Coughing and excess phlegm;
- Shortness of breath, above all wheezing;
- Eye, nose and throat irritation;
- Allergic reaction
- Can worsen symptoms of asthma.
Formaldehyde is a colorless gas that off-gasses from many household products and building materials. Low levels of this gas in our homes is more common than you think. Some sources of formaldehyde include:
- Pressed wood products (i.e. particle board, hardwood, plywood paneling);
- Varnishes, paints, adhesives;
- Cardboard, wallpaper; and
- Smoke from fireplaces, wood burning stoves and tobacco smoke.
The off-gassing process can take anywhere to a few days to many months and meanwhile breathing in these fumes can be causing health problems. Health risks can include anything from respiratory ailments to cancer.
In addition to mold there can be a buildup of bacteria and dust mites that contribute to poor indoor air quality. There are other gases and particles that come from combustion appliances, personal care products, household products, and tobacco smoke. In reality, above all your home may be a toxic brew of contaminants and you may not even know it.
