Regardless of what season it is, people tend to spend a huge amount of time indoors – in the USA it is estimated that the population spend approximately 90 per cent of their time inside. Despite this fact, concerns about air quality have largely focused on the outdoors, effectively ignoring what people breathe in when they sit at their workstations or lie in bed at night.

The reality is that the air inside is two to five times more polluted than the air outside. This is due to the chemicals that are used in buildings and furniture. Low quality air can impact hugely on the health of individuals and often the extent of the damage is not apparent until illnesses become manifest.
