INDOOR AIR QUALITY.

It's been proven over and over again, that literally throughout the world, indoor air quality in homes is many times worse off than outdoor air quality. 
This is no good news for allergy sufferers, but infants, stay home mothers, the elderly and the weak who spend their life totally in doors. This includes office workers as well. People at large are 70% to 90% indoors. 
  
Modern buildings construction are"sealed" concrete, steel and wood structures
that inhibit air circulation. For lack of ventilation, indoor contaminants recirculate
again and again and build up in volume and content within homes and offices. 

Improving indoor air quality is a challenge. The concerned want to know and 
act to ensure improved air quality. This is to improve breathing and to reduce all
sorts of symptoms like red or watery eyes, itchy skin, asthma attacks, sinus, colds
and other respiratory and skin related ills and disorders.

Indoor pollutants can also include molds, dust mites, tobacco, smoke (from cooking),
pollen,pet dander,pet hair and fumes of aerosol cans, paints, varnishes, electronic 
and electrical gadgets and so on. How do you get rid of or reduce these in your home
and your office? 

There are good and great ways ways to improve air quality in home or office.
Improving Ventilation
Find opportunities to increase the amount of outdoor air that flows into your home
or office. This will facilitate air exchange and improve air quality. After a down-pour
is ideal, as you get nature washed dust free air and so are the early morning hours
when air is dense. Air conditioning units pollute, if vents,filters and ducting is not
cleaned regularly. So do conventional bag and canister based vacuum cleaners.  
Open doors and windows ventilation is good when painting, cooking, cleaning etc is 
taking place. Fumes not only smell but are air contaminants. They must be vented
outside and replaced with fresh, clean air.

Controlling the Sources of likely air pollutes. 
Source control and correction is important. If you want improved air quality, you need 
to treat and take better care of the air! Get an air inspector to check the type of 
pollutes indoors, to identify the source and correct to minimise or eliminate. 
Don't smoke in your house. Asbestos; furniture varnishes, and aerosols also add to indoor pollution. Pets are another source of indoor pollutes. Carpets and heavy fabric need to 
regularly cleaned, to minimise dusts accumulation. Moisture control is important and damp
walls, basements need to be corrected.  
Air Purification 
Air purifiers and air cleaners help as well. Smaller units may not have the capacity to
suit differing room sizes, and larger units will be costly with need to change filters.
Some are expensive and sophisticated. Their common function is generally removing 
particle floats and pollutants like dust, pet furs and dander, smoke and fumes. In respect
of removing gases, odour and toxins, the make of the unit determines.
