Indoor air pollution in France is as dangerous as outdoor pollution, because the air pollutants come inside the houses or buildings through doors, windows and ventilation.

In France, you must use an air purifier or fresh air machine at home or office indoor and close all the doors, windows and ventilations when the outdoor air quality index (aqi) in France is very high. Proper ventilation is highly recommended only when outdoor air quality is improving and moderate AQI range.
