Breathing easy inside our homes
Many of us spend a lot of time indoors - particularly when our kids are little - so it’s important to make sure the air inside our homes is safe to breathe.
This can be difficult when there are so many things that can affect our indoor air quality including fumes from paint, new furniture, cleaning products, disinfectants, air fresheners, insect repellents and more.
Babies and young children are more vulnerable to pollutants in the air because they have narrower airways and need more oxygen relative to their size. They also breathe more rapidly, inhaling more pollutant per kg of body weight than adults do (Source: World Health Organisation).
