Previously we mentioned the fact that cooking can impact air quality, why is that so?Moisture, especially if you do nothing about it, creates the perfect conditions for mould and mildew. Inhaling mould has been linked to various health problems – allergic reactions and asthma attacks being the most common ones. If you have children in the household or some of the family members experience respiratory problems, mould and mildew can be even more serious issues.

That’s why you need high quality ventilation, preferably positioned directly above the food preparation appliances.
