Reducing Air Pollutants Inside Your Home

(We have noted for many years that the answer to outdoor air pollution is not to stay inside. That remains true today: the best way to deal with air pollution is to reduce or eliminate harmful emissions.  As for indoor air, dirty air from the outside can enter your home.  And, as our friend Emily Folk notes below, there are other inside air issues to consider as well. Please note: going forward, Clean Air Watch will no longer accept guest posts. Many thanks to the many folks who have offered.)     

Your home may seem clean to you, but there’s a good chance that it’s not nearly as clean as you think. In fact, the EPA states that indoor air quality may be significantly worse than the air outside. That’s a serious problem, especially if you’re someone who suffers from allergies or if you spend a lot of time indoors. And let’s face it, pretty much everyone does.
