Indoor Air Pollution

We’re all aware of outdoor air pollution. Did you know that your indoor air can also be polluted? That’s right! Dust, mold, fungi, pollen, and more can be found in your indoor air. If you or members of your family have been having problems with allergies, sore throats, skin irritations, or other respiratory or skin problems, it could be linked to indoor air pollution.

What’s in Your Indoor Air

Indoor air quality is consistently ranked by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as one of the top health threats to the public. This is due to the number of pollutants we find indoors and the amount of time we spend inside. This is particularly challenging in cold weather when we keep our windows & doors closed limiting the amount of fresh air in our homes.

There are a lot of different pollutants that make up indoor air pollution. Some might be familiar to you and some might be surprising

Dirt, Dust, Pollen, Pet Dander – Pet hair on the furniture isn’t the only thing they leave lying around. Their dander gets into the air and can cause allergies, get onto surfaces and so on. Dirt that gets in from the outside, either through an open window or tracked in by you and your family gets into your home’s air as well. Pollen is a major indoor pollutant. Pollen is extremely small and will get in any way it can. And we all can relate to having to dust the furniture and pretty much everything else on an almost daily basis.

Mold, Bacteria, Viruses – Lately, the world’s biggest threats have been microscopic in size. Mold gives off spores and can cause allergies, asthma, infectious disease (e.g.: histoplasmosis), and other medical issues. It’s been linked to upper respiratory tract symptoms, coughs, wheezing, and more. Bacteria that can cause various diseases are also found in indoor air pollution. Viruses can be found in your indoor air and they can cause a host of diseases and health issues.

Covid-19 & Your Indoor Air Quality

Most of us have made adjustments and changes to avoid contracting Covid-19 and possibly spreading it to others. One aspect of viral spread that’s gained significant attention is the indoor air quality (IAQ) of homes and businesses and how the airflow of HVAC systems can spread
whatever is in the air. The bottom line is this: Better indoor air quality reduces the risk of contracting viruses and many other airborne illnesses.

Viruses work hard, but iWave works harder! During pathogen testing using proprietary NPBI technology, it was determined that 99.4% of the SARS-CoV2 (Covid-19) virus was inactivated within 30 minutes.

What Can I Do About Indoor Air Pollution?
