Impure air in our homes is one of the main causes of allergies, especially in countries where rapid industrialization has propelled pollution levels. Biological air pollutants such as pollen, dust mites, animal dander, and mold can cause an immediate allergic reaction in sensitive individuals. These pollutants travel straight to our lungs and cause airway irritations that trigger allergic reactions.

It’s important to be proactive and monitor your indoor air, especially if you’re among those who are more heavily impacted by indoor air quality. Be aware of any ventilation issues and take steps to protect yourself. The reality is: you can’t solely rely only on your air purifier to protect you from air pollutants in your home.

Many home hacks will reduce airborne allergens and irritants. However, whether you’re an airborne allergy sufferer or live in a polluted city, it is worth considering products that can help double down your efforts to achieve the cleanest air possible. If you’re really serious about making sure your home is pollution-proof, consider using complementary tools in addition to humidifiers, natural household products, and air purifiers.

Does it seem like allergy season has come a bit early this year? Or, maybe you've been getting headaches since your new carpet was installed? These issues and their associated symptoms could be due to air in your home. Homes can generate a surprising amount of indoor air pollution. Even small changes around the home, such as a new pet or cleaning solvent, can have a significant impact on air quality (and our health).

The air we breathe is a delicate balance of a few key ingredients, and many of us don’t realize that even small changes–such as keeping a door closed or using a new type of cleaning product–can completely disrupt this balance. This can lead to headaches, drowsiness, sneezing, and worse.

Your home's air quality may be an issue you are just beginning to recognize. Or, it could be something your family has been struggling with for a long time. Either way, the first step of fixing the problem is tracing the source. Below are some tips for how you can figure out where the pollution in your home might be coming from and what you can do about it.

 

The beginning of 2020 has seen the spread of the novel coronavirus, which appeared in late 2019.

As with any contagious disease, many people are opting to keep their kids home from school or even stay home themselves to prevent exposure. In fact, in many parts of the U.S., schools have been sending students home to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. Restaurants and gyms have closed, and only essential businesses continue to operate. With everyone cooped up in the house, one invisible threat remains: poor indoor air quality.

After talk of a pandemic, indoor air quality seems like a bit of a let-down. However, for those of us practicing social distancing, indoor air quality is more important than ever. In this article, we are going to address why it is imperative to maintain your home’s air quality during the new coronavirus outbreak. But first, let’s discuss the novel coronavirus for some context.

HEPA purifiers are only one type of purifier, but they are your best bet for getting rid of the coronavirus.

For example, ionic purifiers will run into the same issues as HEPA purifiers when removing coronavirus droplets, and UV purifiers may produce ozone, which is a more immediate danger to your health than the coronavirus when staying home.

 

The development of new technology is one of the most promising frontiers for improving air quality. From catalytic converters to low-emitting consumer products, we’ve developed methods for preventing air pollution both indoors and outdoors.

In honor of these technological advancements, we are going to discuss six innovations that are actively preventing air pollutants from harming our atmosphere and our health. We’ve previously discussed regulatory and market-based solutions to air pollution, and both of these methods had their own respective pluses and minuses. Because new innovations don’t usually have the same kind of cost vs. benefit relationship as these other methods, instead of going through technology as an overarching solution, we are going to discuss these innovations individually.
