Indoor Air Quality or Lack of...

My husband and I invested in an IQ Air Filter when we moved into our apartment in Shanghai. Based on the terrible outdoor air quality one can infer that the indoor air can't be much better for you and so many people use some sort of air filter at home.

The IQ Air is supposedly one of the best, and comes in many different versions to best suit your needs. The other day we noticed that one of our filters needed to be changed, this is the first time we've had to change so we had no idea what to expect.

Here are the photos of our filter - it's truly disgusting. I'm glad none of this stuff made it's way into my lungs but who knows what else I've ingested that didn't make it into the air filter.

Ergh! I knew the air was bad but this kind of opens your eyes as to what you are breathing in every day. I might have to get one of those for my apartment. Where did you buy it from?

Hi - yes it looks really bad! How long had you been running the IQ? 3 months? 6 months? Did you get it from Villa Lifestyle or the IQ store? Thanks! About to get one too!
