Outdoor air impacts your indoor air.
1 - If you live in a polluted area, for example in a city or next to an agricultural area, the air in your interior may be contaminated.
2 - The presence of trees or plants around your home can generate pollen and impact your health if you are sensitive and allergic.
Certain equipment inside your home can generate pollution.
3 - Furniture covered with varnish or chemicals can release VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) which pollute the interior of your home.
4 - Ventilation or VMC, if it is poorly maintained or blocked, prevents air from circulating and renewing itself.
5 - A washing machine or dryer can produce humidity. If they are in damp and poorly ventilated rooms, they can create mold that contaminates the air inside your home.
6 - The heating method of a house can also have consequences on the air pollution in your home. This is particularly the case with open fireplaces that generate fine particles, as well as combustion devices such as water heaters.
Your activities have consequences for the quality of indoor air.
7 - Tinkering can be a risky activity. It produces dust and often uses dangerous products.
8 - Cooking creates vapors and smoke that pollute indoor air.
9 - Cleaning your home affects indoor air quality. In fact, cleaning products are often composed of many chemicals that contaminate the air.
10 -Releasing perfumes in the air in your home with sprays or candles has harmful consequences on the air. They emit VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) that contaminate the air in your interior.
