Air quality concerns

Air quality concerns

The daily routine of leaving home for work, taking a lunch break outside, and returning in the evening highlights our substantial indoor existence, constituting nearly 90% of our lives. However, the concerning reality of indoor air quality, often five to ten times more polluted than outdoor air, poses a serious issue. Three primary sources contribute to this pollution: excessive building insulation hindering air circulation, occupant behaviors involving scented products, and the use of modern construction materials replacing traditional ones. The accumulation of various materials in buildings, containing volatile organic compounds, leads to health problems from headaches to severe respiratory issues. Despite the known adverse effects, Switzerland lacks standards, fostering inaction. Experts at HEPIA advocate for awareness and innovative practices, prompting initiatives like HEPIA's healthy living spaces program and the THQMAT initiative by the Geneva government, promoting healthy materials in real estate. Guides, subsidies, and expert support aim to create healthier living spaces, suggesting materials like lime and wood for those mindful of air quality in renovations.
