The Issues Surrounding Indoor Air Quality
Most people take their indoor air quality for granted. But there are variables to consider and to act on to improve the air we breathe in our homes. There is carbon dioxide, mold, radon, and bacteria. To name just a few.
One of the most dangerous is Radon. Because it is invisible it is not easily detectable. Radon tends to enter the home through the soil and enters our drinking water. Thousands of deaths are attributed to Radon every year and lung cancer is the leading cause of too much Radon.
Mold is another culprit. Though not as serious has Radon, mold spores can trigger asthmatic responses. There are some molds that contain toxic compounds, the probability of inhaling these toxins are very low. Mold mostly is found in plumbing leaks or groundwater getting into the home. Like Radon, mold spores can have devasting effects on asthma patients.
Carbon Monoxide is an orderless, colorless gas. It is usually released from space heaters, cigarette smoke, and car exhaust. Breathing in too much Carbon Monoxide can lead to death.
Carbon Dioxide mostly comes from humans. It can cause one to feel drowsy, experience headaches, or lower performance rates when it comes to activity levels. A couple of hours of proper ventilation each day should slow down or eliminate Carbon Dioxide build ups in your home.
One of the best and easiest solutions to improving air quality is to have plants throughout your home. Plants help reduce CO2 levels and release oxygen and water into the air. They also help lessen certain volatile compounds.
For more information on this issue of indoor air pollution, please refer to The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
The Problem of Hazardous Household Waste
Household hazardous waste is one of the least known and probably one of the easiest of all hazardous waste to address. Many people go about their lives blissfully unaware that every day they are handling hazardous waste or bringing them into their homes. Unwittingly exposing their families to toxins that can have adversarial effects.
Some of the materials you should be aware of are:
- Cleaning products; such as oven cleaners
- Automotive products; Motor oil
- Lawn products; herbicides
- Indoor pesticides; bug sprays
- Painting supplies; paint thinners
- Diesel fuel
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Do some research and you will not only be amazed by what you discover, but you will also find practical solutions and substitutions for these products. For example, check out Pinterest, a popular social network, where people share green ideas. And in this case, you can find zillions of solutions dealing with this issue.
Another simple step you can take is to read the labels. Know what you are bringing into your home. On every grocery shelf in America, you will find an eco-friendly product next to the one that is not so safe. Do you and your family a favor and endeavor to find products that may increase the longevity of your life.
