Life in the current age is mainly characterized by one spent mostly indoors; whether people work in office buildings, attend schools, or stay at home – the average time spent outdoors has significantly decreased in the last few decades.

In fact, even the commute to and from work has almost entirely switched over to public or private transport. Now, individuals may spend weeks on end and only gain a few, previously vital hours of outdoor air in total. Hence, the importance of the indoor air we breathe in so frequently becomes paramount.
