Clear the air
According to the World Health Organization, air pollution in the country will comprise 3.8 million of the premature deaths worldwide in 2016, which includes more than 400,000 children under the age of 5 years.
A growing source of scientific evidence suggests that air inside our homes (and offices) may be more polluted than the air we breathe outdoors. “While indoor air pollution is equally bad in developing countries that depend on charcoal or wood for cooking and heating, for example, the contrast in Canada is that due to the weather, We spend 90% more time at home. ” . Alvaro Osornio-Vargas, Professor of Pediatric Health Clinic at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. “Pollution is everywhere and increasingly in our homes. Every step we want to remove is a step forward.” He added that children are exposed to air pollution because they are faster Breathe, their bodies are still growing, and they are often closer to the ground; follow these steps to minimize the possibility of accusations of domestic contamination at home.
1.Air out your basement regularly
Radon, related to the air pollutant inside the canal in Canada, is an invisible and odorless physical radiation phenomenon that occurs naturally in soil in some areas, according to the geological composition. Dr. Osornio-Vargas explains that houses are at risk in homes if there are cracks and holes in the base that you can not always see. “You can buy a cheap cheap radon detector online or in the hardware store or hire a home inspector.” Regular purging and filling any crack helps to control the problem.
2.Check the batteries in your carbon monoxide detectors
In winter, carbon monoxide poisoning is due to inadequate heating systems. Dr. Osornio-Vargas says it can be easily prevented by putting new batteries into detectors or replacing units completely if they are past their expiration date.
3.Clean your wood-burning fireplaces and stoves and have your chimney swept
“While these lovely elements are in winter and in cottages, they are sources of carbon monoxide poisoning, as well as the spread of other indoor air pollution,” said Dr. Me Beagent, deputy director of health programs and health programs in California’s outskirts. The lungs association should be kept well annually – or, ideally, “cleaners, efficient heating systems, such as wooden pellets, heat pumps, electricity and gas” are exchanged.
4.Forbid smoking and vaping indoors
Having a nest inside is a big temptation for smokers during the cold months, but the source of PM2.5 is small particles (including other toxins) that can be deeply ingested in the lungs of those who are inhaled in the house and cause inflammation. Systemic, Exacerbation Dr. Biagtan says: respiratory diseases such as asthma lead to stroke and heart attack. The effectiveness of the unpleasant smoke is less known, Dr. Osornio vargas says, so it’s a safe way to get rid of the sun. “It’s also a good idea to set up a coat for smoking, because the chemicals are in clothing and can be worn when babies are kept”
5.Stop using synthetic scented products
Perfumes, air fresheners, fragrant candles are basically something that, with good scent, can add potentially dangerous chemicals that ultimately breathe in it. This is also true for many traditional cleaners, which can include a long list of chemicals, says Dr. Osornio-Vargas, “The evolution of neurological and hormonal improvements in children and an increased risk of obesity.”
6.Vacuum (ideally, with a HEPA filter) often
Flies, pet birds, dust and any stool from the unwanted mixture are all for toxic breathing. If you suspect the template, call specialists; otherwise, it’s best to remove your carpet, if possible, and often dust and dust. “The most dangerous chemicals we breathe outdoors, such as car exhaust or summer, are fires in dust and particles,” notes Dr. Osornio-Vargas
7.Consider investing in an air purifier
Dr. Biagtan says the device will work if the size is appropriate for the room. “Make sure you choose the air purifier with an HEPA filter or electrostatic precipitator,” he says.
Avoid buying an air purifier, which is an ozone generator. Ozone is another pollutant that can provoke airways.
“Pollution from other vehicles is one of the greatest concerns about air quality.
The 2018 study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NNOF) shows that the release of chemical gases in solutions such as cleaning products and personal care products,
half the emission of VOCs Fossil fuels form industrial cities.
