The Air We Breathe

What are particulates? Particulate matter is the sum of all solid and liquid particles suspended in air, many of which are hazardous. This complex mixture includes both organic particles such as mold spores, bacteria, and viruses, and inorganic particles such as dust, pollen, soot, smoke, and liquid droplets. These particles vary greatly in size, composition, and origin.

Our lungs are constantly being attacked by particulates.

Air Quality In Our Homes

We tend to think of air pollution as something outside—smog, ozone, or haze hanging in the air. The EPA states indoor air can be from 2-to-5 times more polluted than outdoor air. The air inside your home may be polluted by bacteria, viruses, mold, formaldehyde, and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Wikipedia states that: "VOCs are numerous, varied, and ubiquitous. They include both human-made and naturally occurring chemical compounds. Most scents or odors are of VOCs. Some VOCs are dangerous to human health or cause harm to the environment. Harmful VOCs typically are not acutely toxic, but have compounding long-term health effects. Because the concentrations are usually low and the symptoms slow to develop, research into VOCs and their effects is difficult." Pollutants are trapped in the home's breathable air space and on surfaces; when inhaled they can cause health issues impacting our neurological, respiratory and immune systems.

How does your home affect your health?

  • Our homes are plagued with molds, viruses, bacteria and other particulates
  • An average adult breathes about 16 times a minute or about 960 times every hour

Workplace Air Quality

The Unites States Department of Labor states "The quality of indoor air inside offices, schools, and other workplaces is important not only for workers' comfort but also for their health. Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) has been tied to symptoms like headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and lungs."
