What we breathe in decides our life for years to come. Unfortunately, our generation is not as lucky as when we were kids. Now we are stuck with breathing in air saturated with toxins. Coming to think of it, we are constantly surrounded by toxic impurities within the safety of our homes as well as outside. The mounting pollution and the indoor air pollution images introduce us to a scary reality, which we cannot just deny. Yes! We have to live with it and that’s the reality. The situation is worse because of the pandemic and its several waves of new variants. While getting rid of the pollution outside is not in our hands, we can still make indoor air safer during the pandemic. Hence we are sharing a few solutions for indoor air pollution. But first things first, let’s get to the root issues.
What are indoor air pollutants?
Recently a shocking report regarding the plummeting air quality in New Delhi surfaced. According to the report, the levels of PM2.5, the lung-damaging pollutant, are dangerously high in and around Delhi, making the capital city one of the World’s most polluted capitals.
The deteriorating air quality is a matter of concern in every part of India and the world at large. To know more and find solutions for indoor air pollution, we need to know what indoor air pollutants are?
With the pandemic around, polluted air is all the more a threat as the possibility of breathing issues is more. Hence, it is imperative to work on the root cause and make the air safer. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, there are 5 major types of air pollutants – Volatile organic compounds, Excess moisture, Radon, Combustion products, and Tobacco Smoke. With a conscious effort to change our lifestyle, we can find easy solutions to combat indoor air pollution.
Solutions for indoor air pollution
1. Indoor air purifier plants
Embellish the indoors with soothing greens. Indoor air purifier plants are one of the cheapest solutions to indoor air pollution.
The plants like Areca palms, money plants, peace lily, etc are some of the easy and time-saving options that fall within our budget. Nonetheless, we cannot solely depend on them to keep the air pure because with the level of pollution we are exposed to, the purification by these plants might not suffice.
2. Change AC filters
Air conditioners not only help in maintaining the air temperature, they also filter out the common air pollutants. But since they function by rotating the air within the room, the filters will be blocked after a while. This in turn affects the air quality. Hence make sure to clean your AC filters frequently.
3. Clean your rugs and carpets
Weekly cleaning of carpets and rugs is important to keep the air clean. Carpets lock in dust particles and in turn act as air filters. To make it effective, you have to clean it regularly.
4. Clean the air ducts and air filters
AC filters are not the only ones that need regular cleaning. Air filters in appliances like vacuum cleaners and also air ducts in the rooms especially the kitchen also need to be cleaned regularly.
5. Use air purifiers / ionisers
However you try to maintain all the aforementioned tips, it is still necessary to have an air purifier / ioniser at home. You are ready to spend thousands on entertainment gadgets then why not for your own safety? Burge electronics have launched the ion Dome which is an air ioniser and virus neutraliser.
