Indoor Air Quality

Air QualityPoor indoor air quality can threaten your health. Most people spend over 90% of their time indoors, not knowing that the air they are breathing may be more polluted than the air outside. The Environmental Protection Agency has reported that indoor air pollution levels can be 100 times higher than the air outdoors. This is why we should use an Air Cleaner or Air Filter to Purify our indoor air in all our homes.

Breathing contaminated air places your health your family’s health at risk. In fact, the American College of Allergist says that 50% of illnesses are caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air. You can take can control of your indoor air quality by reducing pollutants that will contribute to a headache, lung irritation and fatigue. You can also help prevent and improve more long-term conditions such as asthma, allergies, and infectious diseases.

Indoor Air Pollutants

There are 3 types of indoor air pollutants – Particulates, Microbial, and Gases. In order to make an apples-to-apples comparison, we must compare what each type of indoor air quality product is attempting to do. There is an industry rule of thumb: “If it is alive you have to kill it, If it is dead you have to trap it.”

Particulates

Particulates are tiny particles suspended in the air. Common particulates include residential pollen, dust mites, dust, smoke and dander (skin flakes). Particulate diameters are measured in microns and range from .001 to 1,000 microns. These dimensions represent the continuum from a few molecules up to the size where particles can no longer be airborne.

Microbial

These are bacteria, germs, viruses, fungi, spores, and mold. Although bacteria are small in size and usually microscopic, they have an amazing ability to do damage to all living organisms including humans. Many everyday illnesses are also caused by viruses like the common cold or the flu. Mold can be a dangerous allergen, cause infections, and destroy property requiring extensive repair and rebuilding.

Gases

Indoor odors are caused by things like pets, cooking, garbage exist in every home and office. Gases, such as benzene, formaldehyde, chloroform, hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, etc., are released from furniture, cabinets, carpets, cleaning chemicals, insulation, insect sprays, hair sprays, etc. Manufactures use chemicals to make these products and them off the gas, or evaporate, these chemicals into the air in your home.
