These Four Everyday Things Could Be Driving Down Your Home Air Quality

With the increasing awareness of how low air quality affects human health, it's no surprise that people are looking for ways to improve their home air. What you might be surprised by, though, is that some very commonplace items in your home could be contributing to low air quality. Here are four things you (probably) have in your home right now that could be reducing the quality of your home air.  

Fiberglass Insulation

  Almost all modern homes use fiberglass insulation to prevent drafts and cut down on energy consumption. The problem with this insulation, though, is that it can be a source of indoor VOCs. Chemicals used in the production of fiberglass insulation remain after the insulation is installed. In some cases, these chemicals can become airborne, reducing the air quality in your home. This is especially true of newer insulation, since these chemicals will dissipate over time.  

Houseplants

  Under most circumstances, having plants in your house is actually a good thing. In fact, there are several air purifying plants that can actually improve your home air quality. With that said, there is one significant risk associated with keeping plants in your home: mold. The combination of organic matter and moisture makes the soil your houseplants grow in a good environment for mold. If spores get into the soil, you may begin to see mold growing in your pots.   Now, this doesn't mean you should throw out your houseplants. Instead, just be sure to keep an eye on the soil they're planted in. If you begin to see mold growing, you can clean it off of the plants themselves and transplant them into new potting soil to prevent the mold from spreading further. If you do see mold on your plants, you may want to consider using an air purifier for mold spores to keep new mold from establishing itself once you've cleaned up the existing mold.  

Gas Stove

  If your home has a gas stove, you could be significantly reducing your air quality each and every time you cook a meal. The combustion of natural gas produces fine particulate matter and carbon dioxide, both of which have adverse effects on human health. While the same is true of gas furnaces to some extent, stoves are especially concerning from a health perspective because of how close a person must stand to the open gas flame in order to cook.  

Synthetic Flooring

  Not unlike insulation, VOCs from vinyl flooring could be bringing your home's air quality down. Unfortunately, this is a problem common to many types of synthetic building materials. The best way to deal with this problem is to use a home air purifier for VOCs. These air purifiers are equipped with carbon or charcoal filters that make it possible for them to capture VOCs and other harmful gases.   These are just a few of the common items and materials that could be bringing down the air quality in your home. If you have questions about using air purifiers to clean up your indoor air, we're here to help! Feel free to send us your questions, and we'll be happy to provide you with answers and personalized product recommendations based on your unique needs.

How to Improve Indoor Air Quality in 2021

Now that Christmas is behind us and the New Year is almost here, it's time to start thinking about changes and improvements we can make in 2021. If you're thinking about taking steps to improve your health this year, you may want to give some thought to your indoor air quality. Home air can be full of particles, gases and allergens that could be undermining your overall health. Here's your guide on how to improve indoor air quality in 2021 to ensure your home is as healthy as possible in the new year.  

Step 1: Find Out What You're Working With

  One of the hardest parts of improving your indoor air quality is figuring out where to start. Every home is unique, and it's hard to tell which air quality issues you may have. To get started, one of the best things you can do is to purchase an indoor air quality meter. These devices measure the levels of various contaminants within your home air and provide you with reports that can help you identify and eliminate the air quality issues in your house. Two of our favorite meters are the Foobot and the Airpura Smart Indoor Air Monitor.  

Step 2: Eliminate Possible Sources of Contamination

  Once you know what's wrong with your indoor air, you can start cutting down on the contaminants. This process can be a bit tricky, since some pollutants are much easier to control than others. Pollen can be reduced just by keeping your windows closed during allergy season and using an indoor fan to circulate air. VOCs being given off by building materials in your home, on the other hand, will require much more effort and expense to bring under control.   In the end, you probably won't be able to make your home air perfect just by cutting off contaminants at the source. This can, however, be an effective way to moderately improve your overall air quality.  

Step 3: Use a Home Air Purifier to Remove Other Contaminants

  While you can reduce the level of contamination in home air by cutting it off at the source, using air purification technology is by far the most effective way to clean up your indoor air. Home air purifiers can target and remove a wide range of different contaminants and keep your indoor air as clean as possible.   While your home's needs may vary based on its size and individual air quality challenges, there are several general purpose air purifiers that are useful in most residential contexts. Some of our top all-purpose air purifiers for improving indoor air quality include:     Have questions about how to improve indoor air quality in 2021 with air purifiers? We're here to help!

UK Lists Air Pollution as Cause of Death in Historic First

In a historic decision, the United Kingdom will issue the first known death certificate to list air pollution as a cause of death. The decision was made following a long-standing debate over the death of Ella Kissi-Debrah, a 9 year old British girl who passed away in 2013. The move could set the stage for wider recognition of the role air pollution can play in increasing mortality rates.   The case centered around the question of whether high levels of air pollution in Lewisham, the girl's hometown, could have contributed to the young girl's death. According to authorities, levels of common pollutants in Lewisham significantly exceeded the limits set by British and European law. Ultimately, it was decided that pollutants from vehicle emissions played a role both in causing and worsening the severe asthma that led to Kissi-Debrah's death. Specifically, particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide were implicated as root causes.   While tragic, Kissi-Debrah's case marks a turning point in the recognition of the public health implications of severe air pollution. Air pollution has never before been listed as a contributing cause of death on an official death certificate. By doing so, Britain's health authorities have lent official recognition to the very real threat of low air quality to human health.   Up to now, lack of certainty has made coroners reluctant to attribute any specific death to air pollution. While it is demonstrable that low air quality contributes to huge numbers of deaths at the population level, it's much more difficult to say that it played a role in any individual case. This is the reason it took 7 years and a drawn-out process to prove that air pollution was a main cause of death in the case of Ella Kissi-Debrah. Now that the precedent has been set, though, it's possible that air pollution will begin cropping up more regularly on UK death certificates.   According to the World Health Organization, air pollution contributes to more than 7 million deaths worldwide each year. This includes more than 4 million deaths caused by the kind of ambient air pollution that is believed to have contributed to Kissi-Debrah's death. Despite these shocking figures, polluted air has never before been listed officially as a cause of death. Generally, it has been seen only as an environmental factor that contributes to the conditions that lead more directly to death.   There is, however, much cause for optimism in the effort to reduce air pollution's impact on human health. Even small improvements in air quality have been shown to substantially reduce the death toll that can be attributed to polluted air. As we covered in a blog post last month, the European Environment Agency reported that the number of annual deaths caused by air pollution in Europe decreased by 60,000 between 2009 and 2018.   Although we're still a long way from solving these problems, the official recognition that air pollution causes specific deaths is a historic move and may help to drive public policies that will improve air quality in the United Kingdom and around the world.            

VOCs From Vinyl Flooring: Are Your Floors Ruining Your Air Quality?

In recent years, vinyl flooring has become a popular and inexpensive way for homeowners and landlords to give their floors a fresh look. The problem, though, is that your vinyl floors could be giving off harmful chemicals known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Here's what you need to know about VOCs from vinyl flooring and how they could be affecting your indoor air quality.  

What VOCs Can Vinyl Flooring Give Off?

  VOCs are a fairly broad family of chemicals. When dealing with vinyl flooring, the main concerns are dioxins. These chemicals are not only harmful to human health but can also have disastrous environmental impacts. Dioxins have been associated with several forms of cancer, including but not limited to cancers of the larynx, esophagus and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.   In addition to dioxins, vinyl flooring is also a known source of phthalate chemicals. Phthalates have been associated with respiratory conditions and may also cause hormone imbalances. Vinyl flooring is especially concerning where phthalates are concerned, since these chemicals are used to soften the vinyl, thus making it a better flooring material.  

How Does Vinyl Flooring Produce These VOCs?

  The VOCs given off by vinyl flooring are principally treatment chemicals used when the flooring is being manufactured. Over time, though, the flooring material can release these compounds into your home air. This is especially true as the material gets old and begins to break down. This gradual release of gaseous chemicals is part of a process known as offgassing.  

Are VOCs from Vinyl Flooring Really a Health Hazard?

  Because offgassing occurs at different rates under different conditions, it's difficult to say how much of an effect vinyl flooring has on air quality in any given home. What is certain, though, is that the VOCs given off by synthetic flooring can be harmful in high enough doses.   It's also worth noting that flooring materials are only one of many possible sources of harmful VOCs in modern houses. Wall materials, paint and even insulation also give off volatile organic compounds as they age. As a result, it's a good idea to do everything possible to keep the level of VOCs in your home air under control.   If you want to get a good idea of what your indoor air quality looks like, you can use an indoor air quality meter like the Foobot. This simple, easy-to-use meter will give you readings on particles, humidity and even VOC levels, allowing you to see exactly how good or bad your air quality really is.  

How to Limit VOCs in Your Home

  If you're getting ready to put new flooring in your home, you may want to choose a low-VOC vinyl alternative. In recent years, more homeowners have been paying attention to the effects VOCs could be having on their health. In response, healthier alternatives to many building materials, including flooring, have become more widely available.   To deal with the VOCs put off by existing materials in your home, consider using an air purifier with a carbon filter. Air purifiers for VOCs work by trapping harmful gases inside of carbon filters, then releasing the cleaned air back out into your home. The same system is also effective for dealing with household odors and other gases.   As you can see, dealing with VOCs from vinyl flooring is an easy way to make your home air a bit cleaner and healthier.
