EZ Breathe Helps with Basic Strategies for Improving Indoor Air Quality
If you think you’re safe in your home, you’re wrong. You would be better off spending more time outdoors than inside your home if you’re concerned about your health. The Environment Protection Agency reports that indoor air is more polluted than outdoor air by 10 times. Staying indoors could be contributing to your asthma and causing you to develop various other diseases and conditions.
There are many more pollutants to contend with today in the indoor environment. These include:
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can be found in furniture, electronics, building materials, finishes and paints
- Mold spores
- Tobacco smoke
- Nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide produced during the combustion process in heating and cooking
- Toxic chemicals that are emitted from household products such as cleaning products, air fresheners and pesticides
- Lead and much more.
Strategies for Improving Indoor Air Quality
The quality of air in modern homes today is compromised especially in summer and winter. This is because we tend to keep our homes sealed tightly in order to improve energy efficiency of the home. In order to improve indoor air quality in the modern home, it is important to apply the following three strategies:
- Control the source of pollution
This means eliminating those sources of pollution within the home e.g. use natural cleaning products to reduce emissions. It also means reducing emissions from sources of pollution where possible.
- Improving ventilation in the home
This means allowing for increased circulation of air within the home. We should encourage the circulation of indoor air to the outdoors and allow the outdoor air into the home. This ensures that stale air from the indoors is pushed out and fresh air from the outdoors is drawn in.
- Cleaning air
This involves cleaning air in the home. This may involve the use of a filtration system to get rid of particulates in the air.
