Everyone knows that there is plenty of pollution in the air outside. There can be pollution inside your home as well. Government agencies have named indoor air pollution as a major health risk. There are many reasons for poor air quality, but there are things you can do to reduce the risk.
One reason for poor indoor air quality is that newly constructed homes are built to seal up to maximize the energy efficiency of heating and air conditioning systems. When little outdoor air enters a home, pollutants accumulate to levels that pose health and comfort problems. Unless built with special mechanical means of ventilation, homes that are designed and constructed to minimize the amount of outdoor air that can "leak" into and out of the home may have higher pollutant levels than other homes. Some weather conditions can drastically reduce the amount of outdoor air that enters a home, so that even “leaky” homes build up pollutants.

The less known affliction that goes hand in hand with dry air, involves dry skin.
