Clean Air Has Never Been More Important

Health and well-being specialist, Beurer, explain the benefits of having healthy air in your home

Manchester, England, 12th January 2021: With the recent announcement of another national lock-down, we are all having to spend a lot more time at home. Therefore, it is an imperative time to remind ourselves of the importance of maintaining healthy indoor air quality (IAQ) to maximise not only cognitive performance but also general health and well-being in our homes.

In general, we spend around 90% of our time indoors and 16 hours a day on average at home – for many people this will now be even higher, if not almost exclusively the case. The risk of air pollution exposure is therefore considerably greater than that of outdoor air pollution, particularly given that indoor air can contain up to 900 potentially dangerous chemicals, particles, and biological materials.  

Poor IAQ occurs when there is a build-up of pollutants in the home, to the extent that it affects an occupant’s health and comfort. Poor IAQ is linked to a range of health conditions and each year, close to 4 million people die prematurely from illness attributable to household air pollution, according to the WHO.

Common symptoms of poor indoor air quality can include coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, fatigue, dizziness, headaches, wheezing, allergic reactions, and reduced cognitive function.

Beurer offers some simple top tips to reduce your intake of indoor air pollution:

Keep your home ventilated

Vacuum Clean often

Go for a walk

Dry your clothes outside

Use an air purifier

Why use an air purifier?

Eliminates impurities in the air

Clear allergens

Makes breathing easier

Reduces dust

Improves your ability to concentrate

Better quality of sleep

An air purifier is an appliance designed to cleanse the air in your home, getting rid of all the impurities including odours, smoke, dust, and pet dander. If you suffer from asthma, allergies, or any other respiratory condition that could be worsened by airborne particles, an air purifier may provide you with some relief. Air purifiers are especially important in houses because they quickly and quietly clear allergens and other particles, and effectively remove pollutants present in the air. Without an air purifier, your house could collect lots of dust and germs, which could lead to health problems.
