EPA’s Indoor Environments Division is pleased to announce a new video on Wildfire Smoke and Indoor Air Quality: How to Create a Clean Room at Home.
During a wildfire or prescribed fire, local officials may advise you to stay indoors as air quality becomes unhealthy from smoke. While sheltering, some outdoor smoke, which is a complex mixture of gases and fine particles, can enter your home and affect your indoor air quality.
This video will show you step-by-step how to create a clean room to reduce your family’s exposure to wildfire smoke while indoors. Watch the video to learn more about:
