The average American spends 90 percent of his or her time indoors. Indoor air quality can be affected by ventilation in the building, maintenance conducted on the heating and cooling systems and contaminants in the building. Reports by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1987 (Unfinished Business: A Comparative Assessment of Environmental Problems) and 1990 (Reducing Risk: Setting Priorities and Strategies for Environmental Protection) designated indoor pollutants as a top environmental risk. Since then, government nonprofit organizations have been focused on assessing, managing and creating awareness of the affects of indoor air quality.
