Disgusting! Your Indoor Air Quality in Edmond, OK matters to us!
In the past 20 years, an emerging and expanding body of evidence has shown that indoor air quality has tremendous impact on human health. Americans-especially infants, the elderly, and persons with chronic diseases-typically spend 90% of their time indoors where they can be exposed to very high levels of air pollutants.

Worse, it’s unhealthy. 50 million Americans suffer from allergies and 20 million have asthma. Tighter building envelopes in the quest for greater energy efficiency are making things worse. We spend most of our time indoors, surrounded by the indoor air pollutants. The larger pollutants (less than 10 microns; a human hair is 30 to 120 microns in diameter) are caught in our noses and throats. Smaller pollutants are inhaled into our lungs where they can remain trapped for years.
John L. Kirkwood, President and CEO of the American Lung Association® says, “Keeping the air in your home clean is particularly important for people with asthma or allergies, but the quality of indoor air is something all Americans should be concerned about.”
What can you do?
The third way to fight indoor air pollution is air cleaning. Do not buy the cheap tabletop and gadget air cleaners you hear advertised. They are a waste of money. According to an American Lung Association® report, “The reviewed data provide little reason to endorse the use of inexpensive tabletop, appliance-type air cleaners, regardless of the technology they employ. In general, high-efficiency particle collection requires larger filters or electronic air cleaners.”
Air cleaning is recognized as one of the three strategies to improve indoor air quality and has become increasingly popular as specific populations of individuals attempt to improve the air quality in their residences and immediate environs to relieve symptoms associated with various diseases such as asthma, rhinitis, sinusitis, and allergic respiratory disease.
