Life style changes have resulted in a shift from open air environments to air tight, energy efficient, environments, in which people spend a substantial portion of their time. Most indoor air pollution comes from the hazardous non biological agents and biological agents. Bacteria and Fungi buildup is known to inhabit air filter and duct work within air conditioning systems in buildings. This is a major source of indoor air pollution.
