Los Angeles is known to be one of the most polluted cities in the country. An interactive tool, CalEnviroScreen was released by the California Environmental Protection Agency. This interactive tool helps you look up your zip code and ranks your area either high or low according to the impact of pollution levels found in your area. These are improvements that can help the air quality outdoors but can contribute to the air quality indoor as well. Being aware of how to improve air quality in your home, workplace or business building is important as well. We now have a tool that we can use outside to know how polluted our area is but we can still know if our indoor air quality is bad or good by being aware of symptoms that causes unhealthy indoor air quality.
Below are some key points provided by WebMd.com that can help you breathe easier:
1. Keeping the floors of your business and home fresh.
2. Keep a healthy level of humidity.
3. Being aware of the smoking zone in the building you work in.
