Air quality is something that has many people very concerned. Unfortunately, while outdoor pollution levels continue to get a great deal of attention, many people are completely unaware of the fact that indoor air quality is often much worse than the air outdoors.
Additionally, people are generally not aware of how poor indoor air quality can compromise their health and overall quality of life. This is particularly true for senior citizens or individuals who have allergies or breathing problems.
Common Indoor Air Pollutants
These are a few common indoor air pollutants that we can all learn more about.
Many people like to burn candles. While candles can definitely add a touch of ambiance and beauty to your home environment, they can also release toxic chemicals into the air your family breathes. If you do use candles, always make sure they are either bees wax or soy based and that only essential oils are used in scenting the candle.
For those who want to freshen-up their home with air fresheners, it’s important to know that almost all air fresheners release toxic chemicals. These noxious chemicals can exacerbate asthma and other respiratory problems.
Furniture And Printers
Other common household items that can contribute to poor indoor air quality include ink jet printers and even furniture. The toxic chemicals used in many flame retardant treatments applied to furniture made before 2006 are known carcinogens.
