Air pollution is the introduction of particulates, biological molecules, or
other harmful materials into Earth's atmosphere, causing diseases, allergies,
death to humans, damage to other living organisms such as animals and food
crops, or the natural or built environment. Air pollution may come from
anthropogenic or natural sources.
Healthy Air at Home
While it’s easy to see when you need to dust or sweep, it’s harder to know
when the air in your home needs cleaning. In fact, the indoor air you breathe
can be hazardous to your health without any telltale signs. Indoor air can be
even more polluted than the air outdoors. Don’t let the air in your home
threaten your family's health, especially if someone in your family has
or another lung disease. Let us show you how to protect them.
Indoor Air Pollutants and Health:
Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of infections, lung cancer and chronic lung diseases such as asthma. People who already have lung disease are at greater risk. Find out what makes indoor air unhealthy and how pollution can hurt your body.
Air Quality at Work
Employees should be safe while on the job; that includes maintaining healthy air quality. Although laws and policies exist to protect workers, problems with air quality on the job are often overlooked. Breathing unhealthy air at work is dangerous, but it's also preventable.
How we protect air at Indoor :
By using air purifiers we protect our indoor air.
An air purifier is a device which removes contaminants from the air in a room. These devices are commonly marketed as being beneficial to allergy sufferers and asthmatics, and at reducing or eliminating second-hand tobacco smoke. The commercially graded air purifiers are manufactured as either small stand-alone units or larger units that can be affixed to an air handler unit (AHU) or to an HVAC unit found in the medical, industrial, and commercial industries. Air purifiers may also be used in industry to remove impurities such as CO2 from air before processing. Pressure swing adsorbers or other adsorption techniques are typically used for this.
Uses and Benefits of Air Purifiers:
Dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, and dust mite feces can act as allergens, triggering allergies in sensitive people. Smoke particles and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can pose a risk to health. Exposure to various components such as VOCs increases the likelihood of experiencing symptoms of sick building syndrome. Air purifiers are becoming increasingly capable of capturing a greater number of bacterial, virus, and DNA damaging particulates.
