(NaturalHealth365) Unfortunately, especially living in these toxic times, indoor air cleaning is often overlooked – as a great way to protect our health. Our air is seemingly invisible, a source of life that we very often (unintentionally) ignore as important. However, did you know that we inhale about 15,000 or more quarts of air per day?
We all know that air is an essential factor in our everyday function, and that should speak to the importance of maintaining our air quality. Unfortunately, when I first thought of poor air quality (many years ago), my mind immediately thought of outside air that is tainted with toxic chemicals such as carbon monoxide or aluminum (from chemtrails).
I mean, this is a logical thought process to have when thinking about air quality, but the scary reality of air quality is that our indoor air space is even more dangerous than our outside air. In fact, the quality of indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than the worst outside air. (let’s get serious about this topic – keep reading)
Indoor air cleaning has never been so important as it is today
With potential health hazards as a factor of poor air quality, we must look at the top reasons why an air purifier is a must-have in your home.
How bad is our indoor air?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has declared that indoor air is one of the top five public health threats to Americans. This statistic is particularly alarming when we take into consideration that most people spend 90% percent of their time indoors, and approximately 65% percent of their time at home.
In our homes, there are a vast number of potentially dangerous pollutants making their way into our air. Some of these pollutants include pollen, cleaning solvent, pet dander, glue from composite wood furniture, mold, bacteria, and viruses.
The amount of products in your home that are releasing pollutants into your home’s air can be quite scary when you think about it. Even everyday household items like deodorant or a candle can be contaminating your home’s air quality significantly. With this contamination to your home’s air, we must ask ourselves how is this affecting my health and by using natural, earth mineral technology, what steps can I take to integrate indoor air cleaning and get rid of these pollutants?
Should you get an air purifier for indoor air cleaning?
Since the early 1970s, homes have begun to get built “tighter” as a method to conserve energy in the home, but at the same time, these tight constructions have reduced the ventilation in homes, trapping pollutants in your home’s air. Especially if you live in an area with extreme climates, where opening windows is not a viable option you may need to look for other methods to eliminate these pollutants from your air.
This is just one situation where an air purifier could be of use in a home. However, if you are questioning if an air purifier would be of value in your home you may want to consider these top five reasons for having an air purifier in your home.
1. Breathing in clean air allows your organs, specifically your lungs, the ability to work better. Helping your brain to better absorb oxygen, to help you stay mentally sharp and more energetic.
2. Air purifiers help you to avoid the development of many medical problems such as asthma, emphysema, allergies and cardiovascular disease. (to name a few)
3. Polluted air can make your lungs and body work harder, thus reducing your overall energy. This can impact all aspects of your life, so by having a cleaner and better quality of air, it will allow you to have more energy throughout the day.
4. Many studies have shown that pet dander is a leading contributor to indoor air pollution. Let’s be real, removing your pet from your home is just not an option. Instead, by having an air purifier you can remove the pollutants in your home’s air from your pet, but still keep your best friend in the home.
5. Home air purifiers are the best prevention for children. Children are extremely susceptible to lung and physical development diseases, many of which can be caused by indoor air pollution. Air purifiers can help to reduce medical costs substantially in your home!
Find an effective air cleaner for your home
Indoor air cleaning and reducing pollutants in your home’s air can tremendously improve not only your overall health but improve your overall quality of life. Air purifiers have the amazing ability to filter our air and trap pollutants, to re-release higher quality air into your environment.
Unfortunately, many air purifiers have a fatal design flaw where trapped pollutants happen to be released back into your home’s air, acting counter-productively in the pursuit to improve air quality. Finding an effective air cleaner utilizing absorptive neutralization technology is essential to improving your home’s air.
Absorptive neutralization technology ensures that the pollutants captured by your air purifier are neutralized or eliminated so that it has no chance to reenter back into your air.
Purifying your home’s air is important, because who wants to breathe in contaminated air that could cause potential health problems for you in the future?
Writer’s note: I, personally, use this air purifier – at home with great success – and I know you’ll love it, as well. Note: your purchase of the unit does help to support our operations – at no extra cost to you.
