Air Pollution 

poluicao.png

Air pollution occurs when harmful substances are introduced to our Earth’s atmosphere. Air pollution can cause allergies or in extreme cases, death in humans, diseases and it can also harm our animals, livestock and food crops.   It is very damaging to our environment.  What causes air pollution? Humans and other natural events.

Indoor air pollution and poor air quality are at the top of our pollution problems.  Do you know that mold, pollen, tobacco smoke, the use of household cleaning products, and pesticides contribute to indoor air pollution?  According to WHO, around 3 BILLION people cook and heat their homes using solid fuels like wood, charcoal coal and crop wastes, over open fires or in traditional stoves.  Inefficient cooking and heating practices can emit high levels of indoor air pollution.   Also according to WHO, a staggering 4.3 MILLION people a year die from exposure to household air pollution.

While we can’t necessarily control our outdoor air, we can certainly try to control our indoor air.  What can we do?  Make changes to reduce indoor air pollution, even the littlest change like switching to a more efficient cooking stove can help!  Look for more natural cleaning products, avoid all smoke/tobacco, rid your home of mold and do the best that you can to control pollen that comes in your house.

Another great solution is to purchase an Airfree Air Purifier.

By running an Airfree Air Purifier in your home, you will destroy even the smallest of airborne microorganisms.  Airfree uses its unique ceramic heating chamber without any ozone being used. An Airfree air purifier destroys airborne allergens such as all types of fungus, including those from dust mite feces, mold spores, and most pollutants in the air.  Airfree safely and effectively cleans the indoor air allowing your pet to breath fresh, clean air!

Bacteria in Corporate Environments

e-coli700.jpg

Over the years corporations have made major strides to improve their office environments and choosing wise enhancements for the comfort of their employees.  Our towns, cities and counties are constantly expanding and there are buildings being built or reconstructed to house stores and businesses to what seem like a daily basis.  Growth can cause our outdoor air quality and environment to suffer and believe it or not it can also trickle into our indoor air quality.  Bacteria in our indoor air can cause disease and can trigger respiratory attacks.

Most every office throughout the United States rely on some form of air conditioning and heating system.  Air conditioners and heating systems are a breeding ground for bacteria.  The most common type of disease that is associated with poor air quality is Legionnaires’ Disease.  Legionnaires’ Disease is a disease that spreads bacteria, through mist, from air conditioning units in large buildings.  Adults over the age of 50 and people with weak immune systems, chronic lung disease or are heavy tobacco users are most at risk.   Some of the symptoms of the disease include pain in the chest or muscles, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, fever or chills, shortness of breath, coughing, headache and even confusion.

Those who may suffer from any or all of these symptoms should seek medical attention for an appropriate diagnosis.  Also, strict control of air quality should be a MUST for those who own or operate a corporate environment to ensure that there are no outbreaks of these bacteria and provide their employees with quality air for a quality working environment.

Airfree Air Purifiers are also a solution to air quality issues, whether in the home or at the office, and we invite you to browse our fine line of maintenance free air purifiers by visiting our website at:www.airfree.com

Asthma Statistics

d1191419fcfd1224355f0e6814f20aa0ae3eac0a793e5d1b51pimgpsh_fullsize_distr

Below are facts on asthma pulled directly from the World Health Organization (WHO) site:

Facts

  • According to WHO estimates, 235 million people suffer from asthma.
  • Asthma is the most common chronic disease among children.
  • Asthma is not just a public health problem for high income countries: it occurs in all countries regardless of level of development. Over 80% of asthma deaths occurs in low and lower-middle income countries.
  • Asthma is under-diagnosed and under-treated, creating a substantial burden to individuals and families and possibly restricting individuals’ activities for a lifetime.

Asthma is a chronic disease that is characterized by frequent attacks of breathlessness and wheezing.  The severity and frequency will vary from person to person with symptoms occurring several times a day/week and for some increase when doing physical activity or during the evening.  Those that are at risk for developing asthma are a combination of genetics and environmental exposure to inhaled substances and particles.

 

Indoor allergens like house dust mites found on bedding, blankets, carpets, furniture and pet dander along with tobacco smoke, chemicals used at jobs, pollens and molds, and air pollution are some of the substances and particles that can provoke allergic reactions that can irritate airways.  Other triggers for asthma include cold air, extreme anger or fear and exercise.

 

Asthma cannot be cured but it can be managed with medication.  Medication isn’t the only way to help control asthma – it is strongly suggested to avoid triggers.  While we can’t fully control outdoor air triggers we can certainly try to control our indoor air triggers and the best way to do this is by using an Airfree Air Purifier.
