As Americans, we spend more than 90 percent of our time indoors, whether at school, the gym or in the office. Data shows that indoor air is 10 times more polluted than outdoor air. We strive to make the areas we spend the most time in aesthetically pleasing; however, it is important to understand if the materials we are using are safe.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) noted recently that most Americans do not have a clear sense of the health risks of indoor air pollution. They also do not know what they can do to reduce the risk of asthma, cancer and other serious diseases caused by indoor pollutant exposure.
