You’re probably breathing more allergens than you think. Today’s homes are better insulated, tightly sealed, and use less energy. However, sealing your home also seals in humidity, dust, and indoor pollutants. In fact, the quality of air inside your home is probably worse than it is outdoors. Not only can dirty air make you less comfortable, it can create a serious problem for family members who suffer from asthma and allergies.
Consider: Indoor pollutants can be five times higher than outdoor pollutants.
Most homes naturally generate about 40 pounds of dust per year for every 1,500 square feet of space.
One ounce of dust can hold about 40,000 dust mites, one of the most common household allergens.
Up to 72 trillion allergens find their way into your home every day.
Allergy and asthma cases have grown exponentially, causing significant health care cost increases.
54% of single-family homes with children have someone with a respiratory ailment.
Children inhale 50% more air per pound of body weight than adults, so they are especially sensitive to air quality problems.
