Gone are those days when we used to live in a house with open windows and let the fresh air sweep in, but in this decade where the city-life has been catching fire amongst people, it is better that you keep your windows sealed tight to prevent all the pollutants and heat coming inside your house. But even after so much of effort, the killer is hiding inside your own house, slowly suffocating you and waiting to attack with weapons like stress, asthma, allergies and other health problems. You might be slowly growing the kingdom of Indoor Air Pollution inside your house without noticing.
Indoor Air Pollution, as the name says is the pollution of the environment inside your house. This deadly kingdom has an army of pollens, VOC’s, aerosols, carbon dioxide and CFC’s that are grown by your own living and lifestyle habits. Not blaming you, I know you were not aware of it.
What causes this Indoor Air Pollution? Well the reasons are very basic and simple, your respiration, your wall paint, perfumes and deodorants, room fresheners, old and decaying flowers, dirty hidden corners of floor and walls in your house, for instance behind your refrigerator, old store rooms, bathrooms etc. your unattended and dirty air conditioner filters, dust in the house, all are the armies of the evil pollution kingdom. They cause suffocation, watering of eyes, asthma, skin irritation, bad odor in the house and other health problems. In case you have any toddler or old grandparents in your house living with you, you need to be more careful as their immunity is weaker than and healthy adult and they might easily fall sick.
Now how do we get rid of it? All these problems can come to an end by just growing some indoor plants in a pot inside your house. Plants are the lungs of this planet and they will help you to purify the atmosphere inside your house. Keep your windows open for an hour or two in the early morning to chase most of the air pollutants out of your sweet house. Avoid spraying hairsprays and deodorants like crazy to limit the levels of aerosols up to minimum. And please check your air conditioner filters and keep cleaning and changing them as they get dirty.
