When you think of air pollution, you probably think of smog lingering in a big city. Poor air quality may be closer to home than you think, though. If you’re not taking proper precautions, you may be breathing in allergens and pollutants right inside your home.
Indoor pollutants can enter your home in a variety of ways. While typical house dust is common, cleaning products, new furniture, and visitors can all bring in pollutants that decrease your home’s air quality. Mold, dust mites, and pet dander can also become irritating. This can make you and your family sick or even cause serious health problems.
