We all see our homes as a refuge from the pollution and smog of the city. Have you noticed how often you turn on your car’s AC not for cooling the air as much as to shut out smog and noise?
The air within homes can be more polluted than the air outdoors in a conventional home which is not treated for air quality. Synthetic building
materials, finishes and furnishings release pollutants that can harm your living areas. That sofa you sit on might be more detrimental to your health than running along the city’s largest street in rush-hour traffic!
So, do some homework on the materials you plan to use in your home and those present in furnishings such as your old carpet or that old couch or cabinet.
