The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has ranked indoor air pollution as a high priority public health risk (U.S. EPA, 1990). Recently, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) concluded that preventing exposure to environmental allergens and irritants may help prevent asthma and related breathing disorders (NHLBI, 1995).
Here is a sample of the health and environmental effects of poor indoor air quality:, asthma, rhinitis, sinusitis, and allergic respiratory disease, excessive mold, bacteria, dust, dirt, and smoke, increased utility bills (decreased air flow), unpleasant fumes and odors.
