Unfortunately not, the average home can be up to 5x (times) more polluted than the air outside and we now spend up to 90% of our time indoors.  

As our homes become increasing well sealed, it may seem like we’re shutting pollution out. But the truth, were shutting it in. Weather we’re sleeping, cooking, cleaning or working - our time spent indoors is breathing in potential dirty air. 

The types of invisible pollutants that can build up in your home include:

PM10 - Pollen and allergens

PM5.0 - Bacteria

PM2.5 - Industrial emissions

PM0.1 - Ultrafine particles

Formaldehyde - Carpets, rugs and flooring

Odours - Household fumes and cooking

Benzene and VOCs - Cleaning products and scented candles

Nitrogen dioxide - Gas stoves and car exhausts
