By Jeff Ruiz

“What a beautiful sky …” I thought to myself as I lounged in the hot spa, looking out through the sun room windows.

It is a strange sounding word that carries a lot of importance when it comes to the health and safety of those of us who spend any time within the walls of dwellings and commercial structures.
