Even though no single global standard for clean air exists, there are many different definitions of clean air. The air quality outdoors varies depending on emissions from industries nearby, traffic exhaust and local regulation. Indoors, the air quality can be two to five times – and occasionally up to 100 times – more polluted than the air outside according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Studies show that breathing clean air can contribute to your health and well-being. Using a Blueair air purifier that removes airborne pollutants can go a long way toward helping you breathe healthier.
The most common indoor air pollutants are combustion products, biological particles from mold, pet dander, pollen, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), lead dust and asbestos. Indoor air may also contain over 900 different types of gaseous chemicals and particulate matter smaller than 2.5 microns (PM2.5), according to The European Commission Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks. Breathing in tiny, unseen pollutants puts you at risk. These pass through your lung tissue and into your bloodstream, circulating through your body and staying there. The orange circle above represents the size of the average human hair with a diameter of 60 microns, which makes it huge if you compare it to particulate matter.
What you don’t see can actually hurt you, and air pollution is a major risk to your health. By breathing cleaner air, the World Health Organization states that you can reduce the risk of stroke, heart disease, lung cancer and respiratory diseases such as asthma. An air purifier from Blueair removes airborne pollutants and thereby greatly reduces the health effects associated with breathing bad indoor air.
Don’t allow smoking indoors. Nearly 5,000 toxins make tobacco smoke the most toxic pollutant.
Avoid scented candles and incense. Toxins from paraffin candles are the same as those in diesel fumes.
Reduce or remove carpets, which trap unhealthy particles such as dirt, fungi and dust mites.
Remove outdoor shoes before you step inside, or wipe them carefully on a door mat.
Cut down on the amount of chemicals you use in your home. Use natural cleaning products instead.
Fully vent your wood fireplace or stove when in use to prevent gases and particles from entering your living space.

Both the Blueair Aware air quality monitor and the Blueair Friend app are designed to work with Wi-Fi enabled Blueair purifiers to provide continuous clean air control.

The Blueair Aware recognizes specific pollution patterns and provides indoor air quality data, alerting you and your family to changes in your indoor air quality.
