Many people suffer the effects of sick building syndrome. Yet many are unaware that they are being inflicted by this rather common problem. Sick building syndrome is the result of poor indoor air quality. Many indoor air pollutants may be present in your home or workplace. Indoor air quality (IAQ) will impact your health and how you feel. There are ways to improve indoor air quality in your home.
Studies have shown that most people spend 75-90% of their time indoors. The effects of airborne pollutants are many. (You can read more about it in this article by the EPA). So how can we improve our indoor air quality in our home while also improving our health and well being?
Almost every home and building is polluted with VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Sources of VOC within a home include insulating materials, tobacco smoke, paper bags, plastics,cosmetics, disinfectants, air fresheners, household cleaning chemicals and many more. But these VOCs can be neutralized or eliminated by use of an indoor air quality product.
Some of the best IAQ products on the market today to improve indoor air quality are Reme’s Guardian Air products.

Effects of indoor air pollutants are many, including having adverse reactions to allergies, breathing difficulties, overall health and can also cause fatigue, drowsiness and trouble concentrating.
