Indoor air quality is a top priority for environmental groups, consumers, and manufacturers. The EPA considers indoor air quality on of the top five environmental threats to human health. Immediate effects of poor indoor air quality include irritation of eyes, nose and throat, headaches, dizziness, allergies, and fatigue. Indoor air pollutants may also trigger symptoms of some diseases, including asthma, reproductive and developmental problems, and cancer.
The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) is an industry-independent, non-profit organization that establishes standards and testing for indoor products. The Institute’s goal is to improve public health and quality of life by helping manufacturers build better and safer products. GREENGUARD certification is a third-party validation from an accredited and respected organization in the building, architectural, and construction industry.
