Indoor air quality in homes can be compromised by excess CO2, food particles from cooking, pet hairs, moisture from baths, showers and washing machines. A focus on energy efficiency, and air-tight windows and doors, means that these indoor pollutants are often trapped inside.
As well, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are chemical byproducts found in furniture, paint, carpeting, treated wood, building materials and insulation can emit off-gases that can linger in your home.
Air quality can be improved by:
✅ A dehumidifier
✅ Opening windows, when possible
✅ Invest in a good HVAC system (heating, ventilation and air conditioning)
