Air quality is an epidemic, but I bet you have never thought about pollution in your own home. The EPA claims that the level of toxicity inside your home is probably two to five times higher than that of the outside air. It seems that most people consider air pollution to be a big city problem. We're told to carpool, use public transportation, conserve energy in our homes, and choose environmentally responsible products--yet no one warns us that the bigger threat may be lurking in your own home.
Indoor air pollutants are harmful. Think about it, you're sitting around in them all day long; breathing in the chemicals you used to clean the counter or cover up the smell from your cat's litter box. Harmful chemicals can even come from a fresh coat of paint in your baby's nursery. Did you know that even candles and air fresheners contain harmful chemicals? How often do you truly think about how these chemicals may be adversely affecting your family's health?
The symptoms of indoor air pollution include coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, fatigue, and so much more. They are commonly mistaken for allergies, or attributed to colds and flus. If the sources of these symptoms are left untreated, they can develop into severe forms of asthma and other diseases.
Air filters are only one solution to indoor air pollutants--but they are surely an important one. Serionix has developed a filter that effectively removes mold and toxic chemicals. Want to keep your family safe from indoor air pollutants? Take measures to make indoor air fresher and cleaner.
