Every year millions of fires take place around the world. The high-temperature combustion of materials in buildings produces highly toxic smoke and soot.
Every year, tens of thousands of buildings undergo insulation work to improve energy performance or renovation and decoration work.
Water-related damage affects millions of homes around the world every year. The origins of these problems are multiple:
Offices are places where we spend much of our day and where the air we breathe may be contaminated by pollutants from multiple sources.
The living and dining rooms are where we share and socialize and, after the bedroom, they are the rooms in the house where we spend the most time. There are many sources of indoor environmental pollution and the indoor air quality in these main rooms must therefore be assessed.
With an average of 7 hours of sleep per night, the bedroom is one of the rooms in the house where we spend the most time. There are many sources of air and indoor environmental pollution.
The children spend a lot of time playing in their room and sleep there more than 10 hours a night. Since they are more sensitive to pollution than adults, good air quality and indoor environment in their rooms is essential. However, there are many sources of pollution: new furniture, recent paint, bedding treated against dust mites, play mats, plastic toys, household cleaning products, etc.
Although we don't spend much time in them, our bathrooms contain many toxic substances that can spread to the rest of the home: furniture, paint, perfumes and cosmetics, household products, etc. Bathrooms are indeed confined and humid rooms, in which pollutants accumulate in greater concentration than in other living areas.
