How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a deep breath. Feels good, right? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your house? If so, you would probably be surprised if you had an idea of how many toxins you just drew in, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…is that true? The EPA found in a survey that Americans spend 87% of their lives in the home, and that indoor air pollutant levels are up to 100 times higher than levels outside of your home. Yikes! Now think about the fact that people breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And so do your kids. So does your pet.
