The air of our apartments and houses is sometimes as polluted as the atmosphere of city streets. In order to reduce the factors making negative impact on health, it is necessary to clearly discern what kind of trouble we can expect at home.
– After all, usually, complaining about polluted air, the owners mean dust, but in fact it can be any other substances, – says the candidate of Technical Sciences of Uzbekistan and observer at the Green Climate Fund Artur Vakhitov.
We should pay an attention on the air quality in the apartment having the following symptoms: headaches, sleep disturbance, nausea, peeling skin, unpleasant taste in the mouth after waking up, dizziness, irritation of the conjunctiva.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the health of any person depends 20-25% on the state of the environment. But few people know that to maintain favorable conditions in the house it is necessary to minimize the occurrence of harmful factors. Firstly, it is necessary to ventilate the apartment daily. This is a good way to optimize the humidity of the home atmosphere.
The second most important decision is our green friends. They not only decorate the apartment and saturate it with oxygen, but also cope with pollution and filter the air not worse than the latest technology. An excellent “cleaner” in the house can be geraniums. It not only neutralizes dampness and fumes, but also copes with the stale smell.
Dust and mold are also frequent “guests” on bookshelves or things. To minimize the gathering of unnecessary substances, it is worth once a month to carry out an audit of the apartment.
There are special air purifiers and humidifiers that contribute to the creation of favorable conditions in the house. The specialist advises to choose the technique where water is used as filters, since this category of household appliances will not only clean the apartment from dust, but also humidify the air.
Do not forget that it is very important not only to take care of external environmental factors, but also to monitor the living conditions. After all, as the famous song says: “The most important thing is the weather in the house!”.
