Why is Purification of Air essential in today’s world?
Even in warm climates, we spend most of our day indoors, so indoor air quality is very important to our general health. Poor indoor air quality can lead to respiratory illnesses such as sneezing, coughing, shortness of breath, allergies, asthma, and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). The odour also makes indoor life uncomfortable and can cause headaches, nausea and even vomiting.
How can we improve air quality?
There are several steps that can be taken to improve indoor air quality. Good airflow begins with an all-house ventilator and damper box. Of course, an air purifier can also help, especially if you have chosen an air filter that suits your specific needs. Once you have selected the right air purifier and filtration system, it is important to keep your air purifier clean in order for it to function at its best.
Common indoor pollutants:
1: Dust is ubiquitous and is one of the most common indoor problems. To make matters worse, if you wipe it and try to vacuum it, it will be easily agitated. After that, it floats in the air for hours and inhales. Fortunately, air purifiers can remove dust in the air. Ideally, an air purifier with a HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Absorption) filter should remove these small particles from the air in your home or office.
2: Pollen is another common indoor cause and seems strange as it feels like it needs to be limited to the outdoors. However, pollen can enter through open windows and doors. You can also track your pet, clothes, and shoes. Air purifiers are another great solution to indoor pollen problems and are also great for removing skin debris and odours from pets.
Related health problems
Asthma, allergies, and COPD are common health problems today. Allergies are a major problem among air pollution, chemicals, and other modern causative factors. And many people have a long-standing allergy to home dust, home dust mites (small shrubs that eat dust), and mold and animal hair. As much as we love our furry friends, they cause sneezing, itching, watery eyes, hives, and other symptoms in allergic patients.
Allergies can be limited to specific times of the year or can be a problem all year round. Winter allergies are not uncommon. Dust, pets, tree smoke and other allergens are the cause when we are trapped inside. Fan-based heating can also spread the cause of allergies throughout the home. So even bedrooms and bathrooms are not without triggers.
Most people are familiar with spring allergies. Open windows to take in fresh air and cause pollen and other fine dust that can cause allergic reactions. Adding mold from the spring shower can be miserable. For many, the season of allergies lasts until summer, pollen and mold problems increase.
It is important to address the causes of these allergies and reduce them with solutions such as air purification and natural remedies such as honey. Allergies can be more than just obstruction. They can cause asthma attacks and exacerbate serious respiratory illnesses. Unfortunately, smoking and asthma are closely related, so it is advisable to remove smoke from the room before any health problems occur.
Air quality is a global public health issue
Fortunately, air quality is finally gaining the international attention needed both indoors and outdoors. Pollution is associated with heart problems as well as allergies, asthma and respiratory illnesses and we need to purify air as much as possible especially in a city like Delhi.
