  Americans spend almost 90% of thier time indoors. Research has shown that indoor pollution levels can be 2 to 5 times higher than the levels found outdoors.

Depending on the pollutant, exposures can cause anything from short-term discomfort to long-term illness. Identifying pollutant sources and understanding how they impact your environment is the first step in eliminating potential exposures and improving the quality of your indoor air.

  Schools can be harbors of pollutants which cause health problems, worsen allergies, irritate existing respiratory illnesses and increase the possibilities of long-term illnesses. Research indicates that poor indoor air quality reduces a student's ability to learn and a teacher's ability to teach.

Some of the most common pollutants in schools are chemicals, gases, and biological sources, such as mold and pests.

  Do you experience headaches, itchy eyes, a stuffy nose - that happens only while you are at work? Do your symptoms clear up when you leave work and go home?

Your workplace may have an indoor air problem that is causing you and your co-workers discomfort or possibly health problems. Long hours in a polluted space is not conducive to good health and can reduce the productivity of the workforce.
