Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air quality is so important to not only our health and wellbeing, but as a direct result it impacts our behaviour and mood.
Research conducted by the International Well Institute, revealed that levels of contaminants in the indoors can be up to 2-5 times higher than outdoors.
- 52% inadequate ventilation
- 16% contamination form indoor items such as: paint, building materials, machines, carpet, food and other
- 13% unknown source
- 10% contaminants from outdoors
Indoors we don't have ventilation like we do outdoors. The outdoor air carries in the pollution and contaminants already circulating in the air, from petrol fumes, factories and other chemical releasing causes and it combines with the indoor pollutants emitted from everything around us.
- Approximately 65% of outdoor particles are inhaled indoors, making indoor air quality worse
- 95% of chemicals used in indoor spaces lack data on health effects, which is why it is even more important to work at reducing VOC’s
