Reduce allergens that can trigger respiratory problems and other issues
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants can help reduce your risk of health concerns.
Health effects from air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later. As per a recent study from Harvard T.H.
