According to a new survey conducted by the Consumer Reports National Research Center, apartment dwellers are more concerned about their air quality than homeowners. A mix of 1,000 home owners and renters were surveyed, and the results showed 16 percent more renter respondents seriously fear health threats posed by poor indoor air quality.
"It's possible that because some renters live very close to their neighbors, they worry not only about themselves but also what their neighbors are doing that might impact their safety," said Elissa Schuler-Adair, Ph.D., a manager of survey research at the Consumer Reports National Research Center. "Over 40 percent of renters said they were very concerned about exposure to indoor air pollutants from neighboring dwellings."
Renters concerned about indoor air quality can invest in a home air purifier to reduce the presence of toxins. Dandruff, smoke and allergens created by previous tenants are often undetectable. However, the effects can be pronounced. Asthma and allergies are easily aggravated by the negative influence of these toxins.
