In recent years, the importance of healthy air has become increasingly apparent. With worsening air pollution, climate change, and concerns about the spread of airborne diseases, it’s crucial to prioritize the quality of the air we breathe, both indoors and outdoors.
According to an article by Professor Jan Sundrell from the Technical University of Denmark, indoor air quality plays a major role in regard to public health. “Thus, most illnesses related to environmental exposures stem from indoor air exposure” (Sundrell, 2004).
The air inside our homes can be up to five times more polluted than the air outside. This is because indoor air is often trapped and recirculated, leading to a buildup of pollutants.
Breathing in polluted air can have serious health consequences, from respiratory problems and allergies to heart disease and stroke. Additionally, Prof. Sundrell reports that “there is mounting evidence that exposure to IAQ is the cause of excessive morbidity and mortality.”
To protect your health, here are some ways to improve indoor air quality:
Utilize Air Purifiers.
Refrain From Using Harsh Chemicals.
Monitor Humidity Levels.
Incorporating the above tips into your daily routine can help ensure that you and your loved ones are breathing clean, healthy air. Take care of your health!
