Protect Your Health with Air Quality Technology from H.A.O Goodair

Polluted Indoor Air

According to a study conducted by the American College of Allergies, as much as 50% of ALL illness is aggravated or caused by polluted indoor air. Because modern homes and office buildings are built to be air tight and today’s carpet and construction materials contain any number of pollutants, natural air cleansing agents such as ozone and negative ions are kept outside, while harmful contaminants build up indoors.

Here are a few facts about indoor air quality:
 • Indoor air quality is typically 2 to 5 times worse than the
   air outdoors, with some extreme cases showing as
   much as 100 times worse.
 • Poor indoor air quality can cause or aggravate conditions
   such as asthma, headaches, dry eyes, nasal
   congestion, nausea and fatigue.
 • According to Scientific American, an infant crawling
   across the floor of a typical home will inhale the
   equivalent of 4 cigarettes a day because of exposure to
   chemicals, irritants and fumes from carpets, moulds,
   mildews, fungi, dust mites and other contaminants.

Increase in Asthma Cases

Asthma Inhaler
Recent articles that have appeared in medical and trade publications have linked the development of asthma to various possible indoor pollutants, and the Chicago Tribune has reported that asthma cases increased by a rate of 86% between 1980 and 1996. It has been estimated that about 5,000 people die from asthma-related issues every year.

Present in Every Home

Allergenic pollutants such as pollen, dust, mold spores, fungi spores, tobacco smoke, dust mites, pet hair and pet dander all contribute to poor indoor air quality and are present in every home, no matter how clean and tidy it might be. However, there are ways to mitigate and control your family’s exposure to them.
