Discovering the causes of poor indoor-air quality is the first step in creating a healthful home
You can scrub your house until it's spotless, but if you don't consider the quality of the air you're breathing, your home might not be as clean as you think. Environmental engineer Jamie Lyons takes a look at the factors that cause indoor-air quality to deteriorate and offers 16 ways to improve that indoor air to create a more healthful home. Poor indoor-air quality frequently involves fixing problems in one of three areas: human activities (cooking, showering, even household cleaning products), mechanical systems (leaky return ducts, backdrafting), and construction (poorly flashed windows and doors, cracked slabs).
