Indoor air pollution caused by sources that release gases or particles into the air. Concentration of these gases could be up to 10 times higher indoors than outdoors. Household cleaning products are used regularly and releasing toxic gas more or less continuously into the air of your home or office.

Indoor air pollution has effects that may show up after a single exposure or repeated exposures. These include irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. Certain immediate effects are similar to those from colds or other viral diseases, so it is often difficult to determine if the symptoms are a result of exposure to indoor air pollution. Other health effects may show up either years after exposure has occurred or only after long or repeated periods of exposure. These effects, which include some respiratory diseases, heart disease, and cancer, can be severely debilitating or fatal. It is prudent to try to improve the indoor air quality in your home even if symptoms are not noticeable. (Source: Environmental Protection Agency, http://www.epa.gov/iaq/ia-intro.html)
The World Healthcare Organization (http://www.who.int) states that 3.8 million premature deaths annually from noncommunicable diseases including stroke, ischaemic heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer are attributed to exposure to household air pollution. Most of these are because of open fire heating and cooking, but also from mold and chemicals in cleaning products.
