REASONS FOR POOR HOME AIR QUALITY

REASONS FOR POOR HOME AIR QUALITY

When you hear that the air in some locations is contaminated, you immediately think of outdoor air. That is sound reasoning, because industry, power plants, vehicles, and other machinery emit chemicals, smoke, or other sorts of pollution into the atmosphere. The majority of these issues can arise in either rural or urban regions. But don’t imagine that the air in the village is any better. Farmers’ large trucks contaminate the air just as much as city vehicles. Dusty roads are another source of poor air quality, and let’s not even get started on the pesticides and other chemicals that are now used to spray crops. You can’t do much about the outside air; you can only go inside and close the doors. However, this would be a mistake because the inside air is considerably more contaminated. If not treated, indoor air can become poisonous, allergenic, and who knows what else. If there is no ventilation in the house and the windows are not kept open on a regular basis, the air inside will get significantly polluted by numerous particles. At below, you may find information on how to enhance indoor air quality.

How to Identify if Your Indoor Air Is Polluted

An air quality meter is the best tool to determine air quality. An air quality monitor is available for purchase. However, if you have a good air purifier with smart sensors, you can use it to control the air. If you don’t have an air purifier or an air quality meter, you can search for signs of poor air quality.

If you don’t have an air purifier or an air quality meter, you can search for signs of poor air quality

  • Nausea
  • Coughing
  • Fatigue
  • Dry Skin
  • Nose, Eyes and Throat Irritation
  • Respiratory Infections

If you have any of the above signs, there is a high probability that the quality of air in your home is bad.

Typical sources of indoor pollution

  • Air Filters in a Variety of Devices

Air filters must be clean or they will spread pollution and have adverse impacts. For example, air conditioner units must be cleaned on a regular basis, and filters must be kept clean. The vacuum cleaner is another interesting gadget that can rapidly pollute the air. Cheaper vacuum cleaners have poor filters, so instead of eliminating dust from the floor, they raise it into the air and disperse it. When airborne particles are inhaled, we have a serious problem on our hands. To be honest, if you don’t have a good vacuum cleaner, it’s best to use a damp cloth on dust and wipe it away rather than a lousy vacuum cleaner.

  • Oily House

Fungi is also one of the allergy-inducing bacteria found in the home. You must ensure that the house is not moist and dark, or else mold will grow on your walls, and fungus, as you may know, emits mold spores. We also know that spores are to blame for respiratory issues.

  • Smoke

Smoke is poisonous, especially when it originates from a cigarette. Smoke can potentially kill individuals if ingested in large enough quantities. If you don’t believe me, ask your local firemen. Check to see whether the stove is emitting any smoke. And if you must smoke, do it outside.

How to Improve Indoor Air Quality

The greatest option would be to get a Purikool air purifier. An air purifier is an excellent gadget for filtering the air and removing all airborne pollutants. As a result, the air quality will significantly improve.

  • Clean and adjust all filters in all of your equipment that filters the air in some way.
  • Open windows on a regular basis; it is preferable to breathe in fresh air rather than stale, polluting air.

Wrapping Up

Keep your home clean and invest in an air purifier to ensure that you and your family are breathing in fresh, clean air. Replace the filters in your purifier and HVAC system, and clean the ducting.
