We recently purchased a home built in 1928, with a large, enclosed front porch. The porch has new windows all around, it is carpeted, and has some sort of fake brick wall that has been painted white. When the porch has been closed up for the day, their is a distinct odor. It smells sort of dirty, like sweat...acrid. Is this a mold problem? How do we find out? Do we need to tear up the carpet and walls? Where do we go for help with this?

Many people BELIEVE that if they are INDOORS, they are safe from air pollution. Did you know that AIR POLLUTION can occur indoors as well as outdoors, and may be even more harmful indoors? Air pollution research shows that 70% of outdoor air pollutants flow indoors so they are found in the indoor air environment as well. In fact, indoor levels of pollutants may be 5 times to 1000's of TIMES HIGHER than outdoor levels, because in addition to the outdoor pollutants that come inside, there are many indoor sources of air pollution such as MOLD, mildew and bacteria. (For example, Carbon Monoxide from home furnaces). Over 2 billion people WORLDWIDE use traditional fuels for cooking and home heating. According the World Health Organization, this widespread use results in the premature deaths of an estimated 2 MILLION PEOPLE annually, with women and children being most significantly effected. http://www.epa.gov/iaq/

Most people spend about 90% of their time indoors, so in addition to the possibility of being exposed to more pollutants indoors, we are exposed to them for long periods of time. CHILDREN are especially susceptible to air POLLUTION because of their fast metabolism and their rapidly growing body tissues such as lungs, heart, and nervous system. Want to know about what you
can do to reduce you and your family's exposure to INDOOR AIR POLLUTION?
