Indoor Air Quality Making Us Sick

The air you breathe in your own home could be up to 100 times more polluted than the air outdoors.

Many people are unaware of what is in the air we breathe.  However, health organizations across the continent are sounding alarms that poor indoor air quality is making us sick.  Recent studies have shown that up to 40 percent of homes contain mould and moisture problems and that children living in these homes can be up to 89 percent more likely to have a respiratory illness. 

Mould, household dust and chemical substances can trigger asthma attacks in people with asthma, but far scarier is that recent evidence shows that repeated exposure to these contaminants may actually cause asthma. 

Asthma is the only treatable, lifelong condition in the Western world with a rising death rate, killing 500-600 men, women and children in canada each year.  This is a big increase over statistics from as little as 10 years ago. 

Poor indoor air quality has also been linked to chronic fatique, headaches, eye and skin irriitation, sinus problems, breathing difficulties, even things as serious as emphysema and lung disease.
