PETERBOROUGH, ON — Since the early 1970s, when "sick building syndrome" first became a problem, most Americans have become increasingly aware of the dangers of poor indoor air quality (IAQ), according to a press release
Because of this, Enviro-Solutions
, a leading manufacturer of proven-green cleaning products, and several of its distributors in the United States and Canada have partnered to honor National Care About Your Indoor Air Month, which is February 2011, the release stated.
The goal is to raise awareness about this important issue and encourage their end-customers to take steps to protect indoor air and health, the release noted.
"One of the main reasons IAQ problems have subsided in recent years is the more extensive use of proven-green cleaning products," said Mike Sawchuk, vice president of Enviro-Solutions.
"However, far too many building occupants, especially children, still suffer from asthma and other respiratory problems as a result of poor indoor air," Sawchuck added.
