How polluted is the inside of your home?

Did you know the air inside your home is 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, and can contain up to 100 times more pollutants than the air that's outside? 

The New Scientist reported that; "Scented surface cleaning products can expose you to a similar amount of pollutant particles as a busy urban road used by 28,000 vehicles a day." - quite shocking when you think of the amount of time we spend in our homes. 

Indoor air pollution can cause a wide variety of health problems including, itchy eyes, sneezing, breathing difficulties, skin rashes and even cancer. So what can you do to improve the air quality in your home? 

The BLF suggest the following things to do; 

  • Keep windows open for 5-10 minutes a day
  • Use allergy friendly or chemical free products
  • Prevent condensation
  • Keep your home smoke free
  • Vacuum regularly
