Air Purification

Evidence shows that homes with poor air quality are linked to an increase in risk of health problems. Poor ventilation leads to a build-up of pollutants which can exacerbate illnesses such as asthma. It is important to take steps to reduce indoor air pollutants as much as possible, especially for those who are more vulnerable to health problems aggravated by poor indoor air quality.

Children spend most of their time indoors, the potential for indoor generated pollutants to cause adverse health effects can no longer be ignored. For some indoor generated air pollutants, such as carbon-containing particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide, toxic effects on children are the same as their outdoor generated counterparts.

Exposure to indoor air pollution from cookers, damp, cleaning products and fires, can irritate the lungs and can all too easily cause or exacerbate respiratory conditions such as asthma and other health problems.

If you live on a busy street or suffer from hay fever opening a window to increase ventilation may not be an option.

Here are some air purifying products that improve indoor air quality.
