You recognize that your indoor air quality is important. You’ve added houseplants, gone out of your way to avoid chemicals and other pollutants like tobacco in your home, and even looked into more ways to improve your indoor air quality during your remodeling projects. However, as you’ve worked to improve the indoor air quality in your home, there’s something that you might not have considered: air fresheners.

Air fresheners make your home smell better, sure; but they’re also destroying your home’s indoor air quality. Air fresheners contain chemicals that are known to be dangerous to humans and can cause long-term health problems if your air freshener use occurs too often. If someone in your household suffers from allergies or asthma, it’s doubly important that you avoid air fresheners and scented products.
