Indoor air quality is defined by the EPA as “the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants.” Keeping your indoor air quality under control will help keep you and your family healthy. There are likely some products that you are using on a regular basis that are reducing your indoor air quality. Air Pure Air Duct Cleaning is going to spend some time today pointing out some of these products so that you are aware of them.
Is Nonstick Cookware Harmful to Health
Americans have been purchasing nonstick cookware since the 1940s. Nonstick pots and pans certainly make cooking much easier. Unfortunately one of the chemicals that was used in the past to make these pots and pans nonstick has been linked with kidney, thyroid, prostate, bladder, and ovarian cancers. Thankfully this product is no longer used. If you have really old pots and pans you could be at risk still though. Another concern with nonstick cookware is the possibility of toxic fumes that can release when they heat up over 500 degrees Fahrenheit. As long as you do not overheat your pots and pans you do not have to worry about this.
Chemicals in Cleaning Products Affect Indoor Environment
This one may seem crazy to think about. When you are cleaning your home you are not trying to lower your indoor air quality. You will want to be careful what cleaning products you are using though. Many cleaning products are loaded with volatile organic compounds referred to as VOCs for short. If your family is exposed to VOCs it could be harmful to them. Many people are switching over to cleaning products that are unscented or natural to avoid products with VOCs.
Craft Supplies Can Be a Source of Indoor Air Pollution
Millions of people enjoy doing crafts. Crafting is an excellent way to create unique gifts and decorations. It is also a way to relax and just enjoy the moment instead of falling into the hustle and bustle of every day life. The downside is that some craft supplies can expose you to unwanted fumes. Paints, glues, and markers are all common culprits of this. You may want to consider taking your craft supplies outside so that it does not lower your indoor air quality.
Candles Affect Indoor Air Quality
In an effort to make your house smell nice you may like to light candles. Candles truly can make your home smell divine. Candles are also used to create a nice ambiance in your home for special events. As the candles burn they do have particles that go into the air and reduce your indoor air quality. Candles made from beeswax are better for your indoor air quality so you may want to consider switching over to beeswax candles.
