"Terrible indoor air quality in office buildings, public places and residential dwellings can be potentially harmful to human health even at very lower concentrations." E. M. Carter, L. E. Katz, G. E. Speitel and R. David, Environ. Sci. Technol., 2011, 45, 6498–6503.
Smoking, cooking and perspiration are considered the typical indoor malodorous gases emitted from human activities.
The malodor attached to textiles not only causes indoor environmental pollution but also may endangers people's health.
Textiles tends to absorb odors arising from various sources like body odor, tobacco, food, etc. The retained residual odor in textiles can cause the occurrence of indoor air pollution, and potentially harms to the human body.
Sometimes people can smell certain chemicals in the air before they are at harmful levels.
The CDC advises to take unwanted odors seriously and keep a log of what you smell for at least two weeks.
Local environmental and health agencies can assess a community’s response to odors using residents’ odor diaries.
The same odor at the same exposure level can have different effects in different people.
People more sensible to environmental odors feel sicker and tend to report those symptoms.
Odors can diminish our sense of wellbeing and lead to symptoms such as headaches and nausea
