Air Quality - Indoor

Canadians spend, on average, about 90% of our time indoors, so indoor air quality is very important.

We think of our homes as safe and healthy places to live and raise our families, but humid or damp conditions in the home promote the growth of bacteria, mould and dust mites. These organisms contribute to poor indoor air quality and can cause health problems.

Other indoor problems can be caused by carbon monoxide (CO) or high levels of carbon dioxide (CO2).
