Indoor air quality issue is a growing problem all over the world (see our previous posts in NEWS). However as it appears, it takes time to grow the public awareness and initiate improvement process. Even in Sweden, a highly environmentally-consious country, only a very few indoor places pass the given guidelines level.
One of the recent voices in this discussion was Magnus Mattsson from Gävle University College representing also Svenskt Ventilation. He points out that the trend of increased house isolation in order to save heating energy leads simultaneously to increased particles and pollutants concentration in our home environment. In articles published in TestFakta and DN he brings up also other possible reasons of poor indoor air quality in Sweden, like also importance of the indoor air quality problem awareness.
