Three quick ways to reduce indoor air pollution

Update: 2019-12-24 17:01 Source: LUFTMY Reading: ↻ News

With the continuous development of cities, there are more and more cases about the impact of air pollution on health. Unlike the mechanisms developed by our skin or liver to eliminate harmful pollutants, the lungs have not developed effective mechanisms to remove small dust particles or prevent harmful gases from entering the blood. There has been an explanation: because air pollution in the atmosphere has been rare in the past few hundred years, evolution does not need to "deal with" it.

There are dozens of pollutants and pollution sources in the residential (indoor) space, whose concentration is dozens of times higher than that of the surrounding (outdoor) air. There are many kinds of pollutants in the family space, from the typical combustion process pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide, electronic products pollutants such as flame retardant, to the radioactive pollutants (radon) released by the earth. Every pollutant has an impact on human health, which is a huge scientific basis. However, the combination of these pollutants raises the question of whether there is a synergistic effect, especially long-term exposure.

Many people don't know the real quality of the materials and products they buy for new furniture or carpets. The materials used in these commonly used household products may discharge toxic chemicals into the home environment, which will dramatically increase indoor air pollution in a short and long time. Even seemingly trivial things like cooking or printing expose us to dozens of toxic organic compounds and inhalable particles. Today, there is a broad scientific consensus on the link between exposure to residential air pollutants and the emergence of respiratory diseases in children and adults. Therefore, it is necessary to improve people's understanding of indoor air quality and improve air quality technology.

There are three main strategies to improve the air quality of home space

1. Prevent or control the formation of pollutants, for example, by reducing processed wood products and carpets in the home.

2. (active or passive) ventilate the home space. However, in some cases, the outdoor air quality will be worse than the indoor air quality, or the weather conditions will not allow.

3. When the current two strategies are not enough, technical products are needed to improve air quality. If we know how to plan and adapt to existing air purification technologies, air conditioning and systems have great potential to improve the air quality of families. In my opinion, advanced air purification technology needs to be integrated into the residential air conditioning system as a standard.

All of us take risks in our daily lives: driving, traveling by plane, cycling to work, crossing busy streets, participating in extreme sports and so on. However, perhaps more dangerous to our health is a risk that we are not even aware of, that is, we are exposed to environmental pollutants, which have different degrees of risk. Among these risks, some are unavoidable, some are difficult to avoid because they are deeply rooted in our daily work, and some can only be avoided if we have knowledge.

If we have enough knowledge and information, indoor air pollution is the health risk that we can avoid and reduce exposure. The combination of these three strategies seems to be the most effective solution to reduce exposure to these pollutants and their harmful effects on health.
