We spend most of our time indoors, on average it’s about 90% of adults. Most of us spend even more time than that, for some people the only time they get a breath of fresh air is to get in or get out of their car. Living like that isn’t very healthy, but it’s their life and they choose their own lifestyle. So, we won’t judge. But, if you’re living like this, I would advise that you get out and get some fresh air into your lungs. Being locked up in your home can be very damaging to your lungs. There are all kinds of pollutants that live in our homes. The bad thing about it is that we can’t see them. They are small particles and atoms that float around and slowly poison us. Because we can’t see them with the naked eye, we’ve invented air measuring equipment. You can easily test the quality of the air in your home with this tool or you can have a professional do it.
Modern air measuring equipment allows for easier testing of air quality. You just press a few buttons and you get the results on the screen. You don’t have to take samples to a lab or anything like that. Those were the earlier days of measuring equipment, these days everything is much more simplified. So, after the results are shown, what to do if they are bad? How do you improve air quality? The most important thing is keeping everything clean. Vacuuming up everything and then mopping the dust particles that you missed will ensure that nothing is left behind. Putting some mats at the front door will trap the chemical particles that people bring in on their shoes. Plus, your home will be kept clean and dirt-free.
Let’s go over the reasons to improve your air quality at home and use air measuring equipment. Of course, it’s bad for your health. The important question is, how? Well, the biggest reason of all is healthy lungs and better and easier breathing. When you’re breathing easier, you’re also sleeping better. So, you will always be well rested. If you don’t get rid of the air pollution, you might experience fatigue and headaches. Your can also experience eye and nose irritation. All of these problems could lead to something much worse, such as cancer, respiratory and heart diseases if the pollution isn’t treated.
