ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

The EPA Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that:

“Putting the average person inside a building ranked air pollution due to unsanitary ducting, as the greatest risk to human health above all other types of environmental problems.”

“The EPA determined that indoor air is often 70% more polluted than outdoor air. In fact, one out of six people suffering from allergies do so as a direct result of fungi and bacteria in air duct systems.”

“Up to 50% of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted Indoor Air Quality”

“Most commercially purchased filters are only 7% effective in stopping dirt, pollen and dust from passing through the filters”

“40% of all buildings pose a serious health hazard due to indoor air pollution, according to the World Health Organization”

“EPA estimates an 18% annual production loss to American business due to poor indoor air quality.”

“20% of all employees have a major illness related to indoor air pollution such as allergies, asthma, auto-immune diseases, etc”

“EPA says high levels of formaldehyde cause cancer”

“Scientists now recognize that pollutants, even at acceptable concentration, combined together in an indoor environment have a synergistic negative effect”
