When you’re relaxing inside your home, you probably don’t spend much time thinking about the quality of the air that you’re breathing. Your home is supposed to be a safe haven from any threats like poor air quality, right?
Actually, some studies have shown otherwise. In fact, the EPA has estimated that the number of air pollutants present in indoor air can be 2-5 (or in some cases, 10) times higher than outdoor levels. Additionally, more than 150 known carcinogens have been found in both homes and offices. According to these numbers, love may not be the only thing in the air this Valentine’s Day!
