Air Quality Issues

Wildfire Smoke

Summer wildfire smoke can affect the indoor air quality of your home. The Environmental Protection Agency's new website, Wildfires and Indoor Air Quality can help you learn how smoke enters your home, find updates on outdoor air quality issues, and how to protect your health.

Our indoor air quality can be impacted in many ways. Sometimes there are actions we can take to prevent from getting sick, like cleaning our house to remove allergens or checking air advisories to learn when to stay indoors. Our Breathe Easily fact sheet, P-02166 provides more ideas to protect yourself from common indoor air pollutants.

The special topics page has more information about outdoor air concerns.
