We can live for a long time without food, quite a while without water, and only minutes without air.
Yet we wash our food, filter our water, but seldom think about the air we breathe.
Our bodies breathe in chemicals, dust, dander, pollen's and natural toxins, making our immune system work twice as hard.
Because children's lungs and air passage-ways are smaller they are more sensitive to air-borne problems.
On the Dust page you will begin to appreciate just how important clean air is.
We will find a solution that minimizes the dust and improves your air. Just call.
A company that designs indoor air monitors, AirAdvice, worked with a network of heating, air conditioning, and air quality professionals to collect and analyze about 1.3 billion air samples from nearly 50,000 homes in the U.S. and Canada between 2004 and 2006. Its survey showed 96.7 per cent of the homes generating an “alert”, that is, a level outside the recommended range for one of: particle allergens (dust, dander and pollen); chemical pollutants; carbon dioxide; temperature; humidity; and carbon monoxide. Eighty-three per cent of the homes had two or more alerts. Of concern for individuals with asthma and allergies: the most common problems were high levels of particle allergens and chemical pollutants.
Poor indoor air quality can show up with headaches, respiratory problems, chest pain, chronic colds and flu's, cancer and far more.
See if some of these symptoms are reduced when spending more time outdoors and/or by opening windows at least twice a day. Sleep with a window cracked open. More ideally (in terms of energy loss and security) invest in a Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) that includes a high quality air filter. Do check out this article for how to reduce the incidence of indoor air pollution and this one or this one about using plants to reduce some sources of pollution. Or see this brief video about 10 indoor plants that are proven to reduce benzyne (think of smoke), mould, formaldehyde (furniture, laminates and more), trichloroethylene (paint and more) and others.
Buying a portable air filter (not one with "ozone") that filters air smaller than 0.3 microns can be a life-saver when a neighbour's fireplace is smoking, or forest fires are burning.
Having difficulty breathing? Some pure essential oils may help alleviate symptoms and/or destroy things such as mould. Being able to re-open your air passage-ways is so relieving!
So if you filter your water and wash your food, why wouldn't you want to improve the air you breathe?
Breathing well is associated with words such as life, health and vitality.
