How Clean is the air You’re Breathing?
Do you know someone who suffers from allergies, COPD, asthma, or other respiratory issues? Do you want to protect your young children from developing these issues? Then it’s time for you to learn about just how much the air inside of your home affects your family’s health.
Studies have found that the majority of people spend 90% of their lives indoors now. Just one cubic foot of air can have more than 30 million pollutants—that’s 100 times more than the air outside. About 40,000 dust mites, which increase the chance of asthma development, can live in just one ounce of dust. Air purification products can help you fight back at the particles that are harming your home and your family. With this fact in mind, you should take a good look at your indoor air quality.
How Does the Air Inside of your Home Get so Dirty?
When homes are being built, there are a number of pollutants that become trapped inside of your home from construction such as drywall, dust, paint, and other fine particulates. Older homes have issues with outside air bringing in outdoor pollutants through window seams, cracks, and crevices, but that also means that pollutants could possibly escape with the airflow. Homes built today are built more airtight, preventing any pollutants from escaping your home, which means that they all remain in your home.
Another pollutant to be aware of are volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. VOCs give off toxic gases and include common households such as cleaning products, fabric softener, jewelry cleaner, air fresheners, dish soap, new mattresses, paint, pesticides, tobacco smoke, and carpeting. Combine those with infectious agents (flu viruses and germs) and allergens that you and your family (and pets) bring into your home each day on clothes, hair, and shoes, and now it is a bit more understandable how polluted the air inside of your home may be!
