New research released this week has revealed indoor air quality that is nearly twice as bad as street-side in Hong Kong.
The main culprits are cleaning products and cooking fumes while perfumes, deodorants and scented candles add to the toxic mix along with fumes released from mold, pet hair, pollen and other allergens. The situation is aggravated by high-rise living, a lack of ventilation in some rooms with many windows kept closed to keep out noise pollution.
“Pollutant levels up to 1,250 per cent higher indoors than outdoors, and PM2.5 fine-particle pollution worse than beside some of the city’s busiest roads, research by Baptist University finds.” SCMP
