Air pollutants are substances or particles in the air that affects the health of humans. When humans are repeatedly exposed to indoor air pollution, they could experience side effects such as allergies, nasal congestion, and tiredness; in more extreme cases, it could develop into life threatening diseases such as allergies, asthma, and lung cancer.
This is when we should consider the quality of the indoor air we breathe.
Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is the air quality inside buildings. IAQ is known to affect the health, comfort, and well-being of its occupants. There has been a link between poor indoor air quality (known as sick building syndrome) and health-related problems that reduces productivity and affects learning amongst young children in schools.
Causes of poor indoor air quality
Air pollution particles can be in several forms – solid, liquid (droplets), and gases. They can be found in aerosol cans, gas from our stove, and even dust from our carpets and surfaces.
Poor ventilation is a catalyst in increased production of air pollutants. Most of us would open our windows for ventilation, however, this would allow outdoor pollutants such as pollen to travel inside the building.
Everyone is at risk from indoor air pollution, and for those who have lung-related conditions, there is a higher chance that you would stay indoors. Children are also a group who are vulnerable, as their bodies and lungs are still developing their airways can be inflamed easier. Those that work in construction and home decorators are also at risk of constant exposure to indoor pollutants.
We may not be able to avoid having pollutants indoors, however, we are able to use devices that counteracts the effects of indoor pollutants. This is why at Air For Life, we have developed products that uses NASA-developed technology to bring you a range of products that you can use indoors. Whether you are looking to sanitise the air in a commercial building or even at home, where there’s indoor air pollutants, there’s Air for Life.
For small offices or bedrooms, we recommend our Mini Sanifier II, which is specially created to sanitise the air in rooms of up to 330 square feet.
