INDOOR AIR QUALITY CAN HELP YOU BREATHE EASIER IN YOUR HOME
Did you know that according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indoor air is often up to 5x more polluted than outdoor air? Most people spend most of their time indoors in the comfort and safety of their home often never giving their indoor air quality a thought. Especially right now with the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, most of us are spending extra time in our home with the current restrictions.
We all want to breathe clean air, but have you ever considered solutions available to you to help you achieve the best indoor breathable air for your family?
Common indoor air pollutants include:
INDOOR DUST, SMOKE, AND PET DANDER ALLERGENS
These pollutants are a mixture of solid and/or liquid particles that become airborne and are small enough to be inhaled. Once inhaled, these little particles can affect the lungs and heart and cause serious health effects. Some of these pollutants are big enough to be seen in the air such a smoke or dust particles floating in the sunlight.
MOLD, BACTERIA, AND VIRUSES
Not everyone is sensitive to mold, bacteria, and viruses but for some people they can cause unwanted and serious health problems. Once in your home, these tiny pollutants can find breeding grounds within your home and begin to thrive and grow. Certain highly contagious viruses such as the flu or even the Coronavirus can become a threat in a home with poor indoor air quality. These biological pollutants can cause suffering in individuals with asthma or even cause other health related problems such as dizziness, vomiting, watering eyes, sneezing, and digestive problems.
VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds)
VOCs are toxic and potentially harmful airborne chemicals emitted as gases from certain liquids or solids. Some of the most common VOCs that can be found in the average household are paints, aerosol sprays, air fresheners, dry-cleaned clothing, cleansers and disinfectants. If these gases become airborne, they can cause potentially harmful short and long term health effects such as eye, nose and throat irritation, nausea, and damage to the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system.
Indoor air pollutants may cause health concerns, such as:
- ✓ Nausea
- ✓ Fatigue

- ✓ Coughing
