It is important for our company to make the quality of your indoor air better. You’d rarely think that the air inside your home is safe from outside pollutants that can be emitted from vehicles, factories, and smokers going about on the street; however, there are products and routines, which you use and do, that can negatively affect the quality inside your property.
These air pollutants can come from:
- Teflon fumes from cooking equipment
- Chemicals found in craft supplies
- Chemicals found in cleaning products
- Particles coming from dry-cleaned clothes
- Second and third-hand smoke
- Fumes coming from stoves
- Gasses coming from the chimney
- Mold, pollen, and mildew
- Building materials
From these various products and practices, you are exposing yourself to harmful toxins which, if constantly exposed to, lead to skin and respiratory diseases and illnesses.
Air Quality Index
Air Quality Index (AQI), is one way to tell the quality of your home’s air. It tells you if your home’s indoor air quality is satisfactory or unsuitable, by following a system that relies on fixed measurements and a color-coded system.
Green (0 to 50):
Air quality is considered satisfactory. Pollutants can cause very little to no health risks.
Yellow (51 to 100):
The quality of the air is acceptable; however, there are some pollutants present that can affect people who are usually sensitive to air pollution.
Orange (101 to 150):
People who are sensitive or allergic to these particles are most likely to experience discomfort. The general public, however, does not.
Red(151 to 200):
Everyone will begin experiencing the effects of air pollutants such as sneezing, coughing, irritation in the eyes, and the like. For sensitive people, however, those discomforts will become more severe to their health.
Purple (201 to 300):
The entire population is more likely to be affected because the quality of the air is deemed very unhealthy.
Maroon (301 to 500):
Everyone may experience serious health effects because the air quality has gone up to be hazardous. With this color, health risks are at high alert.
