Good air quality is one of the most important aspects to maintaining a healthy environment in your home, but activities like cooking, cleaning, or renovating can release chemicals into the air you breathe which can lead to short- and long-term negative effects on your health.
According to the EPA, the levels of indoor air pollutants can be 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor levels, and in some cases these levels can exceed 100 times that of outdoor levels of the same pollutants (1). This means that the air inside your house is much less healthy than the air outside.
