Controlling Indoor Moisture to Improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that in America today, we spend approximately 90% of our time indoors. They say that indoor air quality can be two to five times more polluted than outdoors.
Excess moisture is one of the worst air quality offenders. You don’t have to have obvious water damage from flooding, high humidity, or severe weather for there to be a problem. It can develop as a result of less obvious contributors, including normal activities like showering and doing the laundry, slow leaks, steamy kitchens, daily floor mopping, indoor fountains, poor ventilation, etc.
