Concerned about the air pollution in your city? You should be more concerned about the air you inhale while you are indoors. Surprisingly, the indoor air tends to be five times or even more polluted than the outdoor air. Indoor air pollutants are more prone to lead to health hazards than outdoor air, as we spend more than 90 percent of our time indoors, whether it is home, office or a restaurant.
The question of the utmost greatest significance here is what makes the indoor environment so toxic? Here is the answer – formaldehyde and VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) that are present inside every type of residential units, and often found in everyday products such as adhesive material, wood furniture, concrete, carpets, mats, blankets, roof, air conditioners, refrigerators, and other insulation materials. These products release colorless gases and noxious air that last years with us, and cause watering in eyes, coughing and wheezing, irritation in nose and throat and various respiratory problems.
