The importance of keeping indoor air fresh
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that Americans now spend approximately 90% of their time indoors. No one wants to subject their family to a home filled with stagnant, unpleasant air, embarrassing, musty odors or moisture that can lead to health problems.
Poor indoor air quality is a problem that extends far beyond odors. In fact, the EPA indicates that indoor air quality can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air.
- Excess moisture is one of the top air-quality offenders in both old homes and new. Moisture control is the secret solution to fresher indoor air.
- Controlling water, air movement, vapor diffusion and condensation are key.
- Proper ventilation makes a big difference in reducing contaminants, filtering air and decreasing the damages of humidity.
- Using moisture absorbers to maintain a low humidity level is a simple and very effective way to improve air quality.
- Removing excess moisture from your home can have a dramatically positive effect, turning damp, stagnant air into cleaner, drier, fresher and healthier indoor air.
- Products like DampRid that reduce humidity and neutralize odor will reduce moisture and odor problems of all kinds.
