Improving the quality of your life, health, awareness, and work efficiency – all can be achieved by adding a small component to your household or your workplace – the indoor air quality detector.
Using an indoor air quality monitoring instrument is an important step toward to understanding your surrounding environment and safeguarding the health of your family. After all, we spend 90% of our time indoor, where air can be up to 8 times more polluted. This pollution comes from our activities, the products we use, and outdoor pollution coming inside.
What are the major indoor air pollutants?
TVOCs (Total organic compounds): Toxic gases that are emitted from certain solids or liquids.
Respirable Particles: Respirable particles are simply small bits of matter that can easily be inhaled (“respire” is another word for “breathe”).
Formaldehyde: Formaldehyde, or HCHO, is an organic compound that exists as a gas at room temperature. Formaldehyde is invisible, but has a distinctive pungent smell. Its top source in most people’s homes is the presence of pressed wood products.
Particulates: Atmospheric aerosol particles, also known as atmospheric particulate matter, particulate matter(PM), particulates, or suspended particulate matter (SPM) are microscopic solid or liquid matter suspended in Earth’s atmosphere.
What can we do to improve our indoor air quality?
1. Eliminate all indoor cigarette smoking.
2. Keep your home well-ventilated to prevent the build-up of smoke from indoor fires. Regularly clean and maintain chimneys and flues.
3. Keep your home as dry as possible and maintain a humidity level below 50%. Check for leaky pipes and water drips.
4. Potting up green plants in the house will purify the air inside.
5. Because the particles and other harmful gases cannot be seen or smelled, an air quality detector is needed to detect dangerous levels.
