Breathe easier with the help of these indoor air quality blogs
Even in warm climates, we spend a great deal of our day inside, so indoor air quality is essential to our general health. If interior air quality is poor, we can suffer from sneezing, coughing, shortness of breath, allergies, asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), and other respiratory ailments, which we talk about below. Odors may also make indoor life unpleasant and can even cause headaches, nausea, and vomiting.
You can improve your indoor air quality through multiple measures. Good air flow is the place to start, with whole house ventilation and damper boxes. Of course, air purifiers help, too, especially if you choose the right air filter for your specific needs. Once you select the proper air purifier and filter system, keeping your air purifier clean is essential for it to work at top capacity.
Dust is one of the most common concerns for indoor environments because it’s everywhere. Worse yet, it’s easy to stir it up when we try to eliminate it through wiping and vacuuming. It winds up hanging in the air for hours afterwards, causing us to breathe it in. Fortunately, air purifiers can eliminate dust in the air. Ideally, you want an air purifier with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate absorbing) filter to clean those tiny particles from the air in your home or office.
Pollen is another common indoor culprit, which seems strange because you’d think that it should be limited to the outdoors. But pollen is able to come inside through open windows and doors. It can also get tracked inside by pets, our clothing, and our footwear. Air purifiers are another great solution for indoor pollen problems, and they’re perfect to get rid of pet dander and odors as well.
Asthma, allergies, and COPD are common health problems today
Allergies have become a huge problem in the US, between air pollution (see next section), chemicals, and other modern-day triggering factors. And many people have age-old allergies to dust and dust mites (small bush that feed on dust), as well as mold, and pet dander. As much as we love our furry friends, they cause sneezing, itching, watery eyes, hives, and other symptoms for people who are allergic.
Allergies can be limited to certain seasons or they can be a problem throughout the entire year. Winter allergies are not uncommon, provoked by dust, pets, wood smoke, and other allergens when we’re cooped up indoors. Forced air heating may spread allergy sources throughout the home, too, meaning even your bedroom or bathroom may not be free of triggers.
Most folks are familiar with spring allergies. We open our windows for fresh air and invite in pollen and other fine particulates that spark allergic reactions. Add in mold from spring rain showers, and you can be miserable. For many people, allergy season continues into the summer, with more pollen and mold troubles, which can even last well into autumn.
It’s vital to deal with these allergy sources and seek out allergy relief through solutions like air purifying or even natural remedies like honey. Allergies can be more than just a nuisance. They can cause asthma attacks and exacerbate serious respiratory conditions like COPD. Smoke and asthma sadly tend to go hand in hand, so it’s smart to remove smoke from your indoor environment before it causes health problems.
Air purifiers are ideal for removing smoke and other asthma triggers from the environment. Air purifiers also help with COPD, along with other COPD treatments, a health concern that affects older adults most often. Chronic respiratory conditions can be managed, and asthma doesn’t have to stop your life when you take a proactive approach.
Air quality is a global public health concern
Fortunately, air quality is finally getting the international concern it warrants, both indoors and out. As well as triggering allergies, asthma, and respiratory disease, pollution is related to heart problems, too. At Oransi, we are committed to improving air quality worldwide, which is why we partner with multiple organizations. This includes participating in science fairs that educate people about safe air from a young age on up and helping local municipalities deal with issues like benzene leaks.Our efforts aren’t limited to the United States. We’ve been demonstrating air purifiers in places as distant as China, where we opened another store recently in Xi'an. Air purifiers are a growing trend in China considering the many different air quality concerns. We are proud of how this nation is tackling air quality standards and making air safer for everyone to breathe.
