7 Million deaths are recorded annually due to air pollution, according to the World Health Organisation. This is a shocking figure, but what you might not know is that it’s the air in your home and office that puts your health at the most risk. Read through to find out how an affordable counter measure like an air purifier can change that…
We work hard to keep our homes clean and as dust free as possible. The problem is that air pollutants are invisible to the naked eye and come from the very sources we use to keep our houses sanitised. Carpeting and varnishes contain ingredients like formaldehyde and benzene and long term exposure to these can cause anaemia and cancer. The average cleaning product contains around 62 toxic chemicals which linger in the air, making an air purifier a must-have.
Air pollution has the potential to cause allergies and asthma in young children. Children don’t have fully developed immune systems and their bodies can’t protect them from pollutants and allergens like pet dander, second hand smoke, mould spores, dust mites and pollen. Air purifiers can destroy particulates that come through windows; up from foundations or which cling to smoker’s clothes. It will also reduce mould spores and dust mites that collect in hard to get at nooks in the house.
Like children, people who are ill have weaker immune systems which can be compromised by being exposed to chemicals and allergens. Air purifiers will help sick members of the family sleep better and clean air will aid recovery. People who suffer with chronic bronchitis and diseases such as emphysema, who have sensitive airways and difficulty breathing, will be able to breathe easier and avoid exacerbating their condition.
Air purifiers can give you a better nights’ sleep. The unobtrusive machine will freshen stuffy air and reduce bad odours, giving you a better quality of sleep. It will also capture pollen and dust that congests your sinuses and makes you snore – if you have a partner, you will both wake up feeling more refreshed after a snore free night of sleep!
Germs and viruses proliferate in our places of work. Airborne virus particles mean that when one person catches the flu, it’s likely the whole office will also come down with it. This is because offices are closed environments – windows are kept shut and air cooling systems circulate the air and viruses around the tight space. Over the course of their life, the average employee will spend 57% of their waking hours at the office and will be bombarded daily by micro-organisms in the air. To help employees manage their health, stress levels and productivity, businesses need to improve the quality of office air with air purifiers.
