Which areas or rooms in your home should you be concerned about the most? Which are the most contaminated places? What can you do to reduce this contamination? 

The answers to these questions are not that simple to answer as they also depend on each person’s lifestyle and their overall residence.

To give you an idea, your home is as unique as the types of bacteria found inside. Studies show that each house has a specific amount and type of bacteria, like a fingerprint or signature. Did you know that in many cases, indoor air can be more harmful to one’s health than that of large urban outdoor areas?

We have prepared a questionnaire to allow you to evaluate how pollutants can contaminate each room and how you can help to alleviate this problem.


1) Does your kitchen have poor ventilation with no openable windows?

2) Do you store the garbage inside the kitchen?

3) Do you clean the floor with a broom?


1) Do you dry your clothes indoors using a dryer?

2) Do you store garbage in these areas?


1) Is your bathroom poorly ventilated with no openable windows? Do you have a forced exhaust system?

2) Do you see mold on surfaces?


1) Do you have many porous materials in these rooms, such as carpets, curtains, pillows?

2) Cabinets tend to be great places for mold, bacteria, and mites to proliferate and need to be ventilated and sanitized often.

4) A bedroom is a place where we spend most of our time at home whether to relax or to sleep. Therefore, solutions to improve air quality in this space bring greater benefits.


1) In addition to the pollutants mentioned in bedrooms and living rooms, offices also have fax machines and printers that release irritating gases into the airways.


The most common pollutants are those resulting from microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi – most commonly mold – mites and even pollens), chemical pollutants:

The main reactions to these pollutants are airway inflammation as well as allergic reactions. More severe reactions, such as infections and even cardiovascular disease, may occur.

The best step is to purify the air in each room and also to identify the type of allergens you may be most sensitive to by consulting an allergist doctor.
