The most important thing in life is the air we breathe. Taking a deep breath in the great outdoors along a tree lined mountaintop is one of life’s simple pleasures. Ahhhh…. fresh mountain air.
But, back to reality. Most people aren’t spending their lives in the beautiful Yosemite Valley or Sierra Nevada mountains breathing fresh, clean air unless they’re a forest ranger. A majority of our time is spent indoors. At work, school, and home. That is why indoor air quality is vitally important to our health and well-being. Indoor air quality can be 2 to 10 times more polluted than the air outside. Unfortunately, there are no giant sequoias trees in the family room filtering the pollution!
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air quality is one of the top five environmental risks to public health. Indoor air quality is something most people don’t even think about while they’re busy with their daily lives.
It is important to make sure the indoor air you are breathing is clean and not full of unhealthy contamination. Allergens and particulates like mold, mildew, pet dander, dust, pollen and wood smoke have a variety of health effects. Nose and throat irritation, congestion, sneezing, cough, asthma flares and more.
Infectious agents are another phase of indoor contamination. Bacterial infections and viral infections create a whole list of health effects like throat and ear infections, bronchitis, upper repertory infections, and pneumonia.
Toxic compounds like formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, methylene chloride, pesticides, tobacco smoke are another list of indoor air quality contaminates with health effects like memory lapse, lethargy, headaches and blurred vision to name a few.
It all sounds a bit scary doesn’t it? Makes you wanna run from the house and live in a tree house in the woods!
Don’t worry, we’re on it!
