If so, you might be shocked if you knew how many toxins you just drew in, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…what? The EPA found in a survey that Americans spend 87% of their lives inside, and that indoor air pollutant levels are up to 100 times higher than levels found outside. Yikes! Now think about the fact that we breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And so do your kids. So does your Pug.
