Home environmental health risks and the pollution of indoor residential air are becoming increasingly recognized as sources of injury and exacerbation of illness, particularly in vulnerable populations such as pregnant women, infants, children, the elderly, and those living with a chronic medical condition or disability.
It has been estimated that Americans spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors, in homes, daycare agencies, schools, and workplaces. This percentage climbs even higher for groups such as infants and young children, the elderly, and people living with disabilities. Given this high percentage of time most people spend indoors, it is important to change human exposure to pollutants which occur not only outside of buildings but inside them as well.
