Outdoor air pollutants penetrate indoors, and as most of us spend 90% of our time indoor (conditioned buildings/ homes, offices / schools/ commercial spaces etc.), most of the exposure to outdoor air pollution occurs indoors.
There are distinct, important sources of indoor air pollution. Fireplaces, kitchens, furniture, wall insulation, and personal care products, are just some noteworthy sources of indoor pollutants.
