Indoor Air Quality

We spend more than 90% of our time indoors breathing air that is up to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Indoor air can which may contain over 900 chemicals, particulates, biological materials, viruses and bacteria. Each of us breaths 9000 litres of air each day and poor indoor air quality effects the health of everyone in your home.

In a bid to make houses more efficient to lower energy bills and reduce the impact we have on climate change, steps are being taken to improve the insulation and airtightness of a home. But this means the home cannot breathe which isolates the indoors from outdoors and has a negative impact on the quality of the air inside your home trapping the pollutants and stopping them from escaping.

An understanding of how the pollutants are introduced into your home is key to delivering a cleaner environment for your family which will positively impact their health.  There are three steps you can take to towards this goal:

1. Reduce

Reducing the number of
pollutants you introduce
into the air.

 

2. Dilute

Ensuring that there is
adequate ventilation with
fresh clean air to dilute the pollutants.

 

3. Purify

Adding an air purifier to
remove the remaining pollutants
from the air you breathe.

 

What are the causes of indoor air pollution?

Did you know that everyday activities carried out in your home such as cleaning and cooking as well as home decorating can all be contributors to poor indoor air quality?  

Many of daily life activities in our home add moisture, small particulate matter PM2.5 (by-products of combustion) and chemical compounds know as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to the air that you and your family breathe in. If you also have pets this can also expose allergens to your family or visitors.

Allergies & Pets

Biological pollutants such as mould, bacteria,
viruses, pollen, dust mites and animal dander
can cause poor indoor air and can affect your
health if you suffer from asthma and allergies.

 

Cleaning & Cosmetic Products

Cleaning products, air fresheners and cosmetic products
like spray deodorants introduce a source of chemical compounds (VOCs) damaging the indoor air in your home.

 

Construction Materials

 Materials used to decorate and make home
improvements such as paint, release gases (VOCs)
that are not only harmful to your health but also to
the quality of the air you breathe.

 

Furnishings

Formaldehyde is a VOC and another leading cause
of indoor air pollution. It can be found in your carpets,
curtains and the furniture inside your home.

 

Combustion

Fires, candles and cooking all create small
particles that you cannot see, but they can
damage your health and lower the quality of the air around you.

 

Odour

Odours caused by new furniture, pets
or shoes can be unpleasant and can make a
home smell uninviting. Odours also caused by
pollutants like aerosols and air fresheners are
detrimental to health.
