Lets Clear the Air

Many of us already know about the outdoor air pollution we experience every day. Often times, we don’t think about indoor air quality. Exposure to indoor air pollutants can have both immediate and long term effects. Understand and control air quality in your home.

Immediate Effects – Some health symptoms that may show up after a single or repeated exposure to a pollutant.

  • Irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat
  • Headaches, dizziness, and fatigue
  • Symptoms of some diseases such as asthma may show up, be aggravated or worsened

Note: The likelihood of immediate reactions to indoor air pollutants depends on factors like age and preexisting medical conditions. Immediate effects are usually short-term and treatable. Sometimes the treatment is simply eliminating exposure.

 

Long-Term Effects – Health symptoms that may show up after years of repeated exposure to indoor air pollutants.

  • Some respiratory diseases
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer

Note: There is great uncertainty about the level of exposure needed to produce long term effects. It is important to try to improve the indoor air quality in your home even if symptoms are not noticeable

 

Instead of spending tons of money on expensive air filtration systems, use some of these inexpensive short-term alternatives:

Light Bulb Humidifier – Keep your home and office space clean with The RGB Bulb Humidifier. Powered by USB with a 400 ml water tank, this creative bulb design works as a humidifier and a nightlight in any room. Creates a cool mist that will add moisture and eliminate the dryness. The result is fresh air that keeps the skin moist.

Himalayan Salt Lamp – Himalayan Salt has significant health benefits. When the rock absorbs heat from the bulb, the salt naturally emits negative ions which helps purify the air by binding with the positive ions such as dust, pollen and smoke. Helps combat electro-smog emitted from common household electronics such as televisions, desktop computers and laptops. Resulting in a healthier living space, clean, fresh air and a cool ambience.

LED Oil Diffuser – Looking for a simple way to calm and freshen your room? The Essential Oil diffuser is the perfect solution. Elegant and easy to use design includes an Advanced Ultrasonic Vaporizing Diffusion Technology that quietly releases a soothing fragrance that lasts in your home for up to 6 hours. Works to diffuse some of your favorite scents without heat so their holistic properties stay intact. The result is soothing air that smells fresh and clean.
