Although moving indoors shields against the pollutants from vehicle exhausts, it doesn’t decrease exposure to VOCs.
This is due to buildings been built with VOC-emitting products, cleaned with VOC-based solvents, and are home to humans who are liberally using VOC- releasing beauty products.
Insufficient ventilation and sealed living spaces can intensify indoor pollutant levels by not admitting enough ‘fresh’ outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources.
Research specifies that people spend approximately 90% of their time indoors.
Consequently, for many individuals the risks to health may be greater due to air pollution exposure from indoors rather than outside.
