    • Given that we spend up to 90% of our time indoors (65% of that at home, the rest in the office, the car or other build environments) it shouldn’t be a surprise that the quality of those indoor environments have a huge impact on our health. 


      To get scienc-y for a moment, common indoor pollutants that pose risks to our health include carbon monoxide, ozone, particulate matter (PM) and volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) such as formaldehyde, benzene and limonene. These pollutants come from everyday items such as cleaning and beauty products, air fresheners, furniture, paint, building materials, pollen, pets, and dust.  Exposure to these chemicals can be linked to issues such as eye, ear and nose irritation, allergies, asthma, irregular heartbeat and more. 


      The reason this all matters? Because our indoor environments affect almost every aspect of our lives - from our quality of sleep, our energy levels, mood and productivity!
