If you’ve never thought about your indoor air quality you might consider it now. We recently read an article on what causes poor indoor air quality at Tri-Tech Heating in Vancouver’s website and made some changes in how we store our cleaning and maintenance supplies as a direct result of reading the article.
My Mom was complaining that her allergies seem to be much worse this year so I started to surf the web to learn more about indoor air quality. I was amazed at how much it can impact our quality of life. Indoor air pollution comes from many things – seen and unseen – in and around the house. After reading up on the way our indoor air quality affects our quality of life I realized we needed to make some changes.
The first thing I did was take our cleaning and gardening chemicals out of the garage (they were stored on a shelf right next to the furnace) and into our outdoor garden shed. I had never really thought about the fact that, by nature of it’s design, our furnace/air conditioning was sucking those fumes right into our house on a daily basis!
