INDOOR AIR POLLUTION! ARE YOU CONCERNED?  

Do you see that need and urgency to manage and control the extent of and the damaging effects of #Indoor #Air #Pollution
What could one do to minimise the negative impact of #IndoorAirPollution within bedrooms, home and workplace? 

Air borne pollutes is no longer dust alone. It is all about 
  • molds,  
  • dust mites, 
  • household aerosol products, 
  • fumes off home furnishings, 
  • radon, 
  • asbestos, 
  • lead, 
  • tobacco smoke, 
  • carbon monoxide, 
  • formaldehyde, 
  • gas off stoves and 
  • the list goes on.
Modern building concepts have added insult to injury and "totally reduced" the opportunity for air exchange, air ventilation and air circulation. Outdoor air is so much more cleaner than #indoor #air, and without or reduced air ventilation, circulation and exchange, the concentration of polluted indoor air increases daily.

Indoor air quality is of grave concern. We spend most of our time indoors. Within home and bedrooms, within office, within our cars or public transport and within malls and shopping complexes. 

indoor air quality has become a serious issue. Despite all available information on indoor pollutants exposures and their effects on health and indoor environments, ignorance and apathy prevails. Studies have shown that levels of pollutes indoors to be very much higher than the air outside. Indoor air pollutes like radon, formaldehyde, tobacco smoke, dust, mites and its fecal droppings are extremely very high. 

The worst being affected are children, stay home mothers and senior citizens. Health authorities worldwide are saying that they see a continuing increase to a variety of diseases ranging from bronchial and respiratory issues, asthma, skin related allergies and even cardiac and maternal health.  

Choose to protect yourself and family members from risks associated with indoor air contamination. What can your do to help reduce indoor air pollution. 

Would you like to see a demonstration!

KUALA LUMPUR and SELANGOR residents can have a complimentary, no obligations opportunity to witness within their homes how conveniently air wash can be done for all the bedrooms and the house in total.
In House Office talk with a basic demo on request.

WATERY EYES

How Does Air Pollution Affect Eyes 

Today, the air is no longer what it was 30 or 50 years ago. #AIR #POLLUTION has been around for centuries. Today however, we have "no more air" but "AIR POLLUTION" in its abundance. 

Today, air pollution is a mix of so much airborne invisible particles, invisible fumes of gases and chemicals and a potpourri of "literally" any thing that can get air borne. These air filled content are an assortment of allergens and factors that can trigger annoying eyes related symptoms. 

You may ask what could possibly fill the air with. It can range from dust to 
dander from pets, mites and other animals, fungi spores., mold, pollen, tobacco smoke, fumes, gas and vapour off cleaning agents, aerosols, furniture glue, stove gas  and the list is endless. 
Watery eyes can occur when the body makes more tears. Watery eyes may happen naturally in response to emotions, to cold, to a windy weather to an unwelcome area of air filled irritants and so on.  

Red eyes is common with bad air polluted locations. Poor eyes health can have many causes. It can be from allergens, allergies, infections and eye contact with lens and linen of bed sheet and pillows. Maybe it is a blocked tear duct. 


Complications from dry eyes or eye irritation can trigger the release of a large amount of tears in an attempt to lubricate your eyes. The excess tears are also the cause of watery eyes. 

If watery eyes don't resolve on their own, consult an eye doctor who can help determine and treat the cause.

CLEANLINESS redefined

CLEANLINESS  CLEANLINESS CLEANLINESS
Cleanliness is what meets our eyes. Cleanliness is also what meets our nose. Today cleanliness is also what we do not see. The place, the home, the interior of an office, hotel or even the office may appear clean. 

Is it actually clean? If so, where did the words #SICK #BUILDING #SYNDROME surface from? Just because we do not see any dirt, does that mean that that interior space is harmless? Microscopic particles such as dust, dust mite feces, pet dander, pollen, spores, bacteria, and so many other too small to be seen particulates fill the interior space of people occupied premises. 

All and some of these have differing effects on people's well being and can be just temporary and gone or be of repetitive recurrences or even dramatic enough to warrant hospitalisation and in some cases even death. People with poorer immunity, respiratory related short coming, asthmatics and allergen prone are among the worst of suffering indoor beings. 

Image result for cleaning your indoors Broadly categorised as #indoor #air #pollution, enough reports and studies have confirmed that #indoor #air #pollution is many times worse off than #outdoor #air #pollution. Modern architecture has adopted a concealed indoor approach for purposes of energy saving. That approach as also curtailed #air #flow and #air #exchange. This has resulted in indoor accumulates of all sorts of "debris". 


Whatever that came in from the outside as dust, pollen or from upon people's wear remains indoors. 

Our #indoor #cleaning #processes are also culprits adding to ruined #indoor #air. Heading the list is the almost daily used brooms and vacuum cleaners. Brooms stir the settled off the floor into indoor space. These floats remain air borne for hours and people traffic keep them air borne for hours. Secondly vacuum cleaners contribute immensely to #indoor #air #pollution. What they pick up as the "smaller but heavier" particles off the carpet, sofa, cushions, pillows, upholstery and mattresses do not get to be retained within but expelled via the exhaust back into the air. What the brooms and vacuum cleaners throw into indoor air space gets inhaled. Add to these what flies out and off the filters in air purifiers and air conditioners.  

Is that all? All that we spoke of are "countable" "invisible" particulates. There is more. These are also invisible. These are what we bring into our homes and occupied space through cleaning agents, aerosols, furniture and indoor decorative. The liberated gas, fume and vapour off the chemicals used and included in these products is unbelievable. Referred to as #volatile #organic #compounds and used by manufacturers, leave excessive off gas indoors. These get inhaled in our occupied indoor hours.  

Image result for sick building syndromeWe actually no longer have #safe and #healthy #indoor #hours. Today our lives are #indoor #life. We no longer spend more than 10 to 20% of a typical day, outdoors. Add your sleep hours to office hours to travel hours and mall hours and you will know what it is that you are breathing. You will know why #indoor #air is taking its toll on #indoor #occupants. .         


A 60 minutes in-door demonstration illustrates status of indoor air quality within homes, and what one could do to minimise air borne pollutes. In adduition, families come to understand why bedrooms are the worst polluted at homes, know the causes and how to correct. Kuala Lumpur and Selangor families may call 

K.Thiru at 016-3712762. Families in the other states of Malaysia may also call to schedule suitable dates and the hour.

BEDROOM AIR POLLUTION

Hydro cleaners are powerful.
What do hydro cleaners do? 

Image result for water tapHydro is water. Using water as the trap, dust, dirt and finer particulates on surfaces of furniture, fittings, fabric and including carpets as well...... get drawn by the cleaning machine using its power of suction, to be  trapped in water. 

What water would do any given surface as a cleaner is done in a reversed process. Surface is dry. Drawn dirt is trapped in water.

A basin holds 3 litres of water in a basin. Sitting atop is the machine. With its powerd motor, it draws the air in the room into the basin of water for a good  wash. The released air is pollutes and particulates free. Instead of filters, water is the medium that traps and removes air borne dust and pollutes from the air.

Image result for bedroomHaving this machine in operation for 20 - 30 minutes in a standard sized bedroom. would have had all the air given a good wash. Within that 30 minutes, all the air in a given standard bedroom has been drawn into the basin, water washed and released into the room again. WET DUST CANNOT FLY.

In enclosed rooms to be occupied by people, it is so easy and economical to remove air borne dust, pollutes, and other floating impurities into the basin and then to throw away the water. Water washed air is always clean and water washed air in the room for breathing. This is just like smelling the air after a downpour.

Image result for essential oil displayBesides cleaning the air, one can drop tow or three drops of preferred essential  oil into the basin of water while cleaning the air. You get the benefit of cleansed air to breathe with the required aromatherapy function as well. 

Similarly, should the need be there you could have the benefit of sanitising the indoor air while cleaning. You could have cleaned delivered with eucalyptus.  

With hydro cleaners, air flow is constant, air purifying and filtering is so much more economical (water compared to filters) and every time it is fresh clean water washed air. 
    

KUALA LUMPUR and SELANGOR families in MALAYSIA 
can learn how to keep the indoor air washed with water. This no obligation discussion, presentation and demonstration illustrates what family members need to do about correcting indoor air pollution. Breathe healthy air within the home and bedrooms..               Kindly contact K Thiruselvam @ 016-3712762

INDOOR AIR POLLUTION CAUSES.
What is the primary cause and reason or reasons for #INDOOR #AIR #POLLUTION ?

Compared to the outside world, why did INDOOR AIR POLLUTION come to be five to ten times more than the OUTDOOR AIR POLLUTION?.
Why does this fact stand to be true of bedrooms, home, offices and malls?

Many studies have repeatedly shown and proven that indoor pollution is up to 5 or even reaching 10 times more polluted than than outside air. This does surprise many. For all the motor vehicles filling the roads and the industries expelling so much of smoke into the air, how could one reason that indoor air is worse off than outdoor air.

Strangely enough, that is the truth. 
Mother nature almost daily and faithfully washes the outdoor air with mist,rain, shower and dew everyday. Wind and breeze facilitates air exchange and air content dilution. Indoors is a totally different story.   


Look at modern architecture. We live in sealed concretely boxed walls and limited doors and windows, "thankfully" to modern architecture. Over and above their short sighted approach, we we fail to open these limited windows and doors. We do not allow for air ventilation and air exchange. All that we expire remains within. Oxygen is used up. Carbon dioxide gets built up. In addition humidity increases within the building. You can add to that poor air quality that we help generate from within. We have allowed for off gases coming off wall paints, furniture varnish; aerosols; pesticides; insecticides; fragrances; perfumes; poorly maintained air conditioners, not cleaned ducts; sick vacuum cleaners; cleaning detergents; equipment and so much more. 
We live in concentrated traps of gases, fumes, toxins, dust and pollutes.                                                             
By not allowing outdoor air inside, we have increased content of all kinds of pollutes in the indoor air. We never allowed for air exchange and air content dilution. The humidity build up that we allowed enabled bacterial breeding as well.                                                                                                      

From what you read below, you can make educated choices and guesses about your indoor health scenario. Check the sources. Practice corrective measures. Choose to live healthy. We spend more time indoors in home and office. 
This list is a mix of notes related to home and office. Read each carefully.
  1. At home gas, kerosene and wood burning stoves liberate gases and smoke into the indoor environment and remain trapped indoors.
  2. Materials used within buildings as for construction, partitions and  finishing also liberate gases. Wet damp floors and carpets have nauseating smell. Wall paints are culprits. Asbestos materials are also bad.
  3. Furniture varnishes, pressed wood products and plywood materials also pollute the air.    
  4. In the office environment copying machines, printers, adhesives; carpet; computers and correction fluids, air conditioners, vents and ducting add all kinds of fumes and odour to indoor air pollution. 
  5. Cleaning and maintenance materials, sprays, detergents, insectide or pesticide aerosols also add pollutes to indoor air.
  6. Innumerable other sources of pollutes abound indoors.   
Image result for water dropWater is known as an universal cleanser. Nature uses rain, mist and dew to wash air in the outside world. Man has imitated nature and now with hydro cleaners we can clean indoor air and trap floating dust particles, fumes and other pollutes from the air. These hydro cleaners are known to remove stench or cigarette smell from the air as well. These hydro cleaners are far more efficient and yet economical in comparison to air purifiers or cleaners with filters.   

  • KUALA LUMPUR and SELANGOR families can learn how to keep the indoor air, furnitures, fittings, mattresses and the floor and walls washed with water. This no obligation demonstration illustrates what family members breathe and live with indoors within the home and especially their bedrooms.               Kindly contact K Thiruselvam @ 016-3712762
