Indoor Air Quality

indoor air Indoor Air Quality
We spend most of our lives indoors so we should give more thought to the air quality in our sheltered environment. There are gases and fumes that we can’t see or smell but are extremely toxic. This includes radon, carbon monoxide, mold, and VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds). Early detection and prevention after the jump.


Check out the EPA’s recommendations for indoor air quality. There is also the Indoor Air Quality Association which is a non-profit group that is focused on indoor air quality education.
Here are some other resources:
OSHA
Healthy House Institute
American Lung Association
US Consumer Product Safety Commission (interesting publications)

  • Milliken Carpet

    Milliken & Company is a one in a million brand that is committed to design paramount quality of carpet and tiles for both domestic and commercial uses. I sing the praise of the Company because I have been using the Company’s product for consistently five years so far and I am highly impressed to see the matchless durability, wider range of styles and colors that are far greater than any interface. The only thing that sulks me is the higher prices than other brands yet the blend of comprehensive features is enough to downplay the pricing aspect, so I must recommend using Milliken Carpet and tiles for domestic and commercial purposes and I bet you will more than happy and satisfied to use their products!
