INDOOR POLLUTION has earned its ranking amongst environmental dangers. It could be within the home or the office. It could be in the malls, complexes, high rises and any other totally enclosed buildings with people movement.

Occupied buildings are being labelled as SICK BUILDINGS.  Bedrooms are being called, "BAD ROOMS". Air borne pollutes of all sorts fill the air and such inhaled air has been found to be the primary cause for sinus, bronchial and respiratory disorders, asthma triggers, teary eyes, fatigue and a whole host of other ills. 

We call ourselves the modern society, and yet remain trapped and bound as occupants within ill homes, offices, malls and even vehicles. This happens  day after day for as much as 18 to 20 indoor hours daily.  

There is so little awareness amongst people about air pollution's ill effects. There is no attention or correction to poor indoor air quality. Ill practices of using traditional vacuum cleaners, old fashioned air purifiers and the household brooms continue and worsen the indoor air quality scenario.

  • Is your purifier fitted with a HEPA FILTER?
  • Have you stopped using vacuum cleaners at home and in office?
  • Why are AIR PURIFIERS important at home and in the office?

Nothing cleans the air indoors better than a well designed air purifier. What is a well designed air purifier? A unit that has with it a fitted HEPA FILTER, is considered good. The traditional air purifiers had only filters that were disposable or washed and reused over and over again.Such filters in air purifiers have proved to be insufficient and inefficient. They were detrimental to good health, as the accumulation of dust and pollutes allowed bacterial breeding and got fed into the air. Also regular washing made the pores bigger, allowing dust and particulates to escape and re circulate.    

There is continuing increase in evidence of the dangers of air pollution. More and more people recognize the necessity of breathing clean, healthy air. Air purifiers fitted with HEPA filters enjoy quality air. HEPA filters retain up to 99.97% of airborne particles like pollen, dust, pet dander, mold spores, dust mite allergens, and other invisible microscopic pollutants. 

Air Purifiers with a HEPA, cleans and clears the air allowing the whole family, especially the children to enjoy better health

Would you like the advantage of purified air at home? 
YES! you can and we will show you more than that. Getting rid of air borne particulates will be good, but air is also a carrier of bacteria and viruses. Would you like the  advantage of sanitising the air whenever necessary? You say that it would be excellent! But we have more than that for youWould you like the idea of medicating the air and when necessary practice aromatherapy?

Air purifiers are a pleasant relief for those who suffer allergies, sinus and even asthma. When it comes to your health and the health of your family, only the best will do. We all know how clean the air is after the rain. Nature washes the air and removes all the air borne pollutes. You too can do the same indoors. KUALA LUMPUR and SELANGOR residents can have the benefit of witnessing a complimentary and no obligations indoor air wash and air purification.  Call 016-3712762 for K Thiruselvam

We like to think that because we keep the doors and windows closed, we are in control over the air within the home.

We like to think that by denying outside air in, we are healthier and much cleaner with our indoor style and life of living.
The truth is that indoor air is more polluted than outdoor air and bedroom air is the worst. We do not realise that our homes (and offices) are actually sealed traps. Modern architecture has not allowed for sufficient ventilation. 
Our homes (and offices) are trappings of concentrated fumes off wall paints, off furniture varnishes, fumes and vapours off aerosols, insecticides, heat waves of our refrigerators and electrical appliances, trappings of gas off the kitchen stoves and the list goes on. Add to this volumes of dust, dust mites, mites feces and carcasses. What about the many smokers and their could not be bothered attitudes of indoor smoking?

  • Reduce the amount of visible and sweepable particles from entering the house, by having everyone take off their shoes at the entrance.  
  • Stop using the traditional cloth or paper bag based vacuum cleaners. They spill the finest dust back into the air via the exhaust. When bags are not disposed after each session, the spilled dust brings into the air, bred bacteria and foul odor as well.
  • Do not sweep the house. Use a mop or wet clothe to wipe the entire floor. Sweeping lifts dust off the floor into the air, that will land on furniture and shelves for even more cleaning hours and labour. Air borne dust gets inhaled. 
Reducing Summer Allergy Symptoms Indoors

  • Avoid using chemical based solutions to wash the floor, for they emit fumes and Volatile Organic Compounds.

    • Mattresses and pillows need to be sun dried and bedding sheets need to be washed weekly. Blankets, bed linen and the mattress are the largest collection base of our dead skin cells, dust, dust mites, mites dander and other pollutes. All these get air borne in the bedroom with each of our twists and turns in bed. You would not want to use all hours of your daily sleep, inhaling these air pollutes.

    • Your mattress is dirtier than you would have imagined. Try washing** it without getting it wet and see what comes off your mattress.
    • All sprays like hair sprays, cleaners, perfumes, insecticides etc are chemical based. They leave chemical gases afloat in the air, and often take time to become dilute. Use what you need outside of the bedroom, nearer a open window.
    • In sourcing furniture, home decorative and even the wall paint, seek that are natural and emit lesser toxins. Manufacturers are responding with healthier products for consumers. 
    • Have potted plants indoor. Every few days, rotate them by bringing these out and replacing with others. Plants filter air and it helps.
    • Open the windows early mornings when air is fresh or even after each rain. The air that comes in is cleaner. It will replace old depleted air from the inside. 
    **washing**. You can wash the air indoors. You can wash the mattress and furniture, cushions, carpets, electrical equipment and almost anything without getting them wet.
