How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a deep breath and inhale. Feels good, I bet? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your home? If so, you may be alarmed if you realized how many toxins you just pulled in, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…is that true? The EPA found in a survey that Americans spend 87% of their lives inside, and that indoor air pollutant levels are up to 100 times higher than levels outside of your home. Yikes!
