New resource by air filtration industry leaders from Camfil US explains the growing health threat of indoor air pollution and how to improve indoor air quality.

Indoor Air Pollution is Among the Top Five Environmental Risks and One of the Greatest Risks to Human Health, According to the EPA — Air Filtration Experts from Camfil Weigh in on Solutions

Riverdale, NJ — In 2021, it is common knowledge indoor and outdoor air pollution pose significant risks to human health. A growing body of scientific literature however shows the threat of indoor air pollution may be worse than originally believed.

In a new educational resource by Camfil US, air filtration experts explain the scope of the threat in simple terms and describe the process of finding the right high efficiency air filter for your facility. Camfil is a global leader in air filtration manufacturing and engineering, having made significant technological contributions and innovations to air filtration in the healthcare sector during the ongoing global crisis.

Camfil’s Manager of Marketing and Technical Materials, Mark Davidson, explains that high levels of indoor air pollution are linked to symptoms such as respiratory tract irritation, congestion, fatigue, headaches, coughing, sneezing, dizziness, and nausea, as well as worsening and sometimes triggering the onset of respiratory conditions such as asthma.

“Air quality monitoring technology has come a long, long way in the last few years,” says Mr. Davidson, “With improved technology, researchers are finding pollutants like formaldehyde, asbestos, radon, and even pesticides in higher levels than ever before. What this suggests is that the real threat of IAQ (indoor air quality) might be worse than we thought.”

Experts from Camfil provide advice on the following topics:

  • What the EPA has learned about the threat of indoor air pollution in recent years.

  • The truth about commercial and residential air filtration.

  • Health threats associated with indoor air pollution.
