Healthy, Clean Air

Filed Under: Home,Natural Cleaning Aids at 12:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Breathing clean air is essential for a healthier life but signs of impurity can be difficult to identify. Unpleasant odors are quite easy to be discovered, likely a buildup of bacteria in the air, but the majority of air pollution isn’t visible, and neither can be smelled.

Indoor air pollutants directly cause a vast number of health problems, and removal of these harmful materials can improve your quality of life. Studies have shown that air purifiers can significantly reduce and eliminate harmful contaminants and pollutants (which cause common respiratory illnesses) and consequently prevent colds, asthma, headaches, and allergy irritation of the nose and eyes.

Air purifiers work by directing air through a filter multiple times as the filters are able to catch particles, ultimately purifying the air up and freeing the inhabitant of unsafe contaminants such as dust, pollen, bacteria, spores and viruses. When shopping for an air purifier, it’s important to look for HEPA product, a type of air filter which meets the High-Efficiency Particulate Air standards. Modern HEPA products contain the most powerful air purification technology and can remove 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns. Cleanliness is also important, regular dusting followed by vacuuming is a vital step but the problem is that while reducing pollution particles it also stirs them up. A HEPA air purifier can prevent what would otherwise be a vicious cycle.

Additionally, plants can help to clean the air inside your home. A list of air filtering plants was compiled by NASA as part of a clean air study. As well as absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen, plants also eliminate significant amounts of benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene. The list includes many house plants such as spider plant and aloe vera which also contains a medicinal gel, known for healing cuts and burns.
