80% of children are allergic to dust mites & other household contaminants.
90% of our time indoors is alarming since the EPA states that Indoor Air Quality is a Top 5 Environmental Danger to our health. This includes time spent at work, school, and of course, at home. The quality of the air we breathe should be a major concern. Indoor air pollution is something every home in America struggles with, and dealing with the issue isn’t getting any easier. Unfortunately, most people do not know how low indoor air quality affects their health.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), pollutants cause inflamed airways, eye irritation and damage to the respiratory tract. An irritated respiratory tract can induce coughing, mucus secretion, and long-term infections. It is particularly damaging to those with asthma or compromised immune systems. Over time, exposure to poor air quality can lead to reduced lung function and breathing problems as well as lung cancer or cardiovascular disease.
A significant contributing factor that leads to low indoor air quality in the home is caused by pets. Pets are known to carry high levels of dust mites. These dust mites eat the dead skin cells from your body and begin to reproduce (in the millions) causing irritations such as sneezing, coughing, and skin reactions.
5 scary facts about indoor air quality that you probably didn’t know about
1. The EPA Ranks Indoor Air Pollution as a Top 5 Environmental Danger
The Environmental Protection Agency has ranked indoor air pollution as one of the most concerning environmental dangers we all face daily. This is primarily because the sources of pollution are everywhere in our home. In fact, the EPA estimates that our indoor air has nearly 5x as many pollutants than outdoor air. Some homes may even have 100x more pollutants.
The EPA has conducted several studies which prove that indoor air pollution is a problem for all types of homes regardless of where it is located. The most commonly discovered sources of indoor air pollution include combustion sources, building materials, chemical products and organic matter.
2. Secondhand Smoke Is One of the Top Indoor Air Pollutants
Secondhand smoke is considered the worst indoor air pollutants around the world. It is known to contain more than 200 different types of poisons, including formaldehyde and carbon dioxide. It also includes at least 60 chemicals known to cause cancer.
Here are some quick stats to think about. Every year in the United States, smokers account for:
- 3,500 lung cancer deaths a year.
- 42,000 heart disease deaths a year.
- Over 1,000,000 children suffer from asthma-related problems.
- $10 billion in medical costs every year.
Secondhand smoke has also been shown to severely affect infants, increasing their risk for pneumonia, lower respiratory tract infections, ear infections, and spur the development of asthma.
3. Pediatric Asthma Rates Have Jumped 72%
Currently, asthma ranks as one of the most common chronic conditions in the United States and the leading serious chronic illness of children. Sadly, numerous indoor air pollutants have been directly tied to causing or increasing the risk of asthma developing in children. By purifying the air you breathe in your home, you will be creating a more favorable environment for your kids and your health.
4. Hundreds of Harmful Chemicals Are Released Every Day
Small things we do on a daily basis can quickly lead to a dramatic deterioration in indoor air quality. Hundreds of harmful chemicals are admitted or released by household cleaning agents, personal care products, paint, and solvents used on a regular basis. These chemicals have been tied to causing dizziness, allergic reactions, skin irritation, nausea, and cancer.
It’s wise to keep a close eye on the products you use on a daily basis and consider the potential effects they may be having to the air you breathe.
5. The Quality of Indoor Air Can Be Up To 100x More Polluted Than Outside Air
One of the most surprising statistics reported by the EPA is that the level of indoor air pollution can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the worst outside air. In dire circumstances, some homes have reported having air which is 100x more polluted than the worst outside air!
Most people can recognize the health concerns associated with outdoor air pollution. However, they rarely consider how poor their indoor air quality is.
Based on all of this information, when would NOW be the right time to invest in a solution that keeps your indoor air quality the best it can be?
