Indoor Air Quality Testing | VideoAmy Fox | 10/8/2012
Researchers say people spend about 90% of their time indoors. But, that`s no necessarily a good thing.
Dust, carbon monoxide, radon, mold, and carbon dioxide can all produce pollutants causing respiratory problems.
“You know a lot of your purifiers come with a ozonerator and what it does, it puts ozone in the air, which will take care of your bacteria viruses, but it is also hard on people`s respiratory systems and it may give you a headache, so you don`t want to run that when your going to be there,” said Director of Environmental Services at First District Health James Heckman.
Heckman says air purifiers work best in office environments. And, First District Health Unit in Minot offers free radon tests.
