AIR QUALITY AWARENESS WEEK: THE IMPORTANCE OF MAINTAINING AIR QUALITY INSIDE THE HOME

Every year, one week in April is celebrated as AIR QUALITY AWARENESS WEEK. Not only outside the house, poor air inside the house can also cause various health problems. Understanding and controlling air quality indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns. Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or years later. So a technology is needed to create healthy air in the room.

One of the weeks in April is observed as “Air Quality Awareness Week”. This aims to increase public knowledge and awareness of the impact of pollution and the efforts that can be made to improve air quality.

Not only outside the house, poor air inside the house can also cause various health problems. Usually indoor air quality problems only cause discomfort. Most people feel better as soon as they remove the source of the pollution.However, poor indoor air quality also has been linked to lung diseases like asthma, COPD and lung cancer. It has also been linked to increased risk of heart disease and stroke.  

Poor air quality in the house can be caused by pollution from outside the house or from objects in the house that we are not aware of as a breeding ground for germs. Especially in a closed room without ventilation at home, this place will of course be a place where dust, bacteria, fungi and viruses will continue to be in the room and multiply so that it pollutes the air and reduces its quality.

This will be dangerous for the health of family members at home, especially children and babies who are mostly in the house. According to statistics, most people (especially in urban areas) spend about 90% of their activity time in closed spaces to work, study, rest, etc. In conditions like this, a technology is needed to create healthy air in the room.
