With spring around the corner, many of us will soon want to start the new season with a clean and organized home. Spring cleaning involves organizing our homes from top to bottom and cleaning everything from appliances to doormats, but have you considered cleaning your air?
Indoor air pollution: worse than outdoor air quality
Indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than outside, so it is important to clean the air in your home efficiently. Blueair’s air purifiers remove at least 99.97% of all airborne particles such as pollen, smoke, dust, mould, spores, bacteria, viruses, pet allergens and microplastics as small as 0.1 microns in size from the air we breathe. With research showing plants to be ineffective in cleaning the air, and given that we spend on average 90% of our time indoors, an air purifier is a household necessity!
Chemicals in cleaning products
Spring cleaning tends to require a lot of time and a lot of cleaning supplies – many of which contain chemicals that can be harmful to our health.
Chemicals from cleaning products contribute to air pollution, so it’s important to use an air purifier to remove these harmful toxins from the air. Indoor air pollution is made up of a combination of dust and particles or gases from everyday household products such as candles, paint, and varnish on floors. Airborne traffic pollution can even get inside your home and pollute your air.
How airborne particles impact your health and well-being
Breathing in this fine dust or PM2.5 (also known as fine particulate matter) can penetrate deep into the lungs and cause respiratory difficulties, heart and lung problems and a host of other diseases, studies show. Particles in the air can also contribute to anything from colds and flu to determining how well you sleep.
