On average, we spend 90 percent of our time indoors, with much of that time spent in our own homes. Surprising to many home owners are the high concentrations of pollutants found indoors which can often be 2-5 times greater than outdoors*.
When hazards are present in a home, they can have a profound effect upon the health of the occupants, particularly those most vulnerable such as children. Some home conditions contribute to asthma development or aggravation, including mold, mildew, dust mites, pests and pet dander. When these allergens are reduced or eliminated, thereby reducing asthma triggers, children have fewer and milder asthmatic episodes.
