Indoor allergy triggers and pollutants: a problem of growing public health and economic importance. A proportion of around 25 % of the Swiss population is affected by an allergy.
Indoor pollutants can trigger or aggravate allergic diseases: sometimes they act as allergy triggers themselves (e.g. formaldehyde) and may increase the sensitivity of the mucous membranes (eyes, nose, gut, airways) and hence cause a greater probability of allergies.
Many people spend 90% of their time indoors. Good ambient air and a healthy indoor climate are therefore essential.
Allergen- and pollutant-free indoor premises lead to a measurable increase in well-being and efficiency. According to existing studies, economic losses in Europe caused by absenteeism resulting from a poor indoor climate are estimated at around 100 million euro. Therefore operating costs can be lowered by healthy indoor premises.
