Breathing is as natural as… well, breathing! We do it unconsciously, we do it constantly, and it keeps us alive. So, it’s quite frightening to know that a daunting 99 per cent of the global population is breathing in air that doesn’t meet the health standards of the World Health Organization (WHO).
So, we should all try to stay indoors where there isn’t any air pollution, right? Wrong. In many cases, the concentration of air pollutants can be 2-5 times higher indoors than what is found outside. And considering we spend up to 90 per cent of our time indoors, this level of indoor air pollution should worry everyone.
Why Is Air Pollution Worse Indoors?
In our homes, offices, cars, and other enclosed areas, we are in a smaller, more compact and confined space, without any wind or open areas to dissipate pollutants in the air. Therefore, the air in enclosed areas often has higher air pollution concentration than outside.
Furthermore, not only do we spend so much of our time indoors, but we often gather near each other in our homes and offices, which leads to a greater risk of exposure to airborne pollution, bacteria, and viruses, such as SARS-CoV-2, more commonly referred to as Coronavirus, the cause of COVID-19.
Control Your Air
Hopefully, you already have HomePure Zayn – QNET’s antiviral air purifier – in each room of your home. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, an air purifier is one of the top three ways to combat indoor air pollution at home.
- Invest in an air purifier, such as HomePure Zayn,
- Ensure good ventilation throughout your home, and
- Control the source of indoor air pollution.
Control The Culprits
Let’s look at that last point above: ‘Control the source of indoor air pollution’. The culprits of air pollution in your home can be found in every room of your house, so it is vital to ensure good ventilation and good placement of an air purifier.
- Bedrooms: Dust mites, pet dander (pet hair and fur), beds, bed covers, and rugs.
- Bathrooms: mildew, bacteria, viruses, household cleaners.
- Kitchen: chemicals, smoke, carbon dioxide, cooking fumes.
- Living Areas: tobacco smoke, carpeting, rugs, furniture, curtains.
- Garage: carbon monoxide, car fumes, paints, solvents.
And let’s not forget the people in those rooms! We are a source of indoor air pollution with carbon dioxide emissions, viruses, bacteria, bodily fluids, and skin flakes. Even when we are healthy, especially when we are sick, we contribute to the air quality around us.
Control The Capture
Our house’s ‘Four Cs’ – couches, carpets, curtains, and covers, such as rugs, bedspreads, etc. – are responsible for capturing the culprits of air pollution, but not in a good way. Unlike an air purifier, which captures airborne particles and then filters them out of the air, the ‘Four Cs’ capture air pollution particles and then keep the particles around, constantly releasing and re-releasing them into the air until we breathe them in.
So, you must be mindful of keeping couches, carpets, curtains, and covers clean and ensure you have an antiviral air purifier in each room where any of the ‘Four Cs’ live.
Control The Coronavirus
One reason the Coronavirus spread as quickly and broadly as it did, is that it is airborne. Now more than ever, it is so important to filter and purify the air we breathe, making air purifiers with antiviral protection a vital inclusion in each room of the home.
HomePure Zayn – Antiviral Protection From Indoor Air Pollution
The HomePure Zayn air purifier was recently supercharged thanks to its new and enhanced antiviral HPP+ Filter.
