Canadians spend close to 90 percent of their time indoors, making indoor air quality an important health concern.
Poor air quality has been shown to cause and/or irritate a wide array of health effects, such as:
- lung cancer
- respiratory infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia
- ear, nose, and throat irritation and inflammation
- and many others
