Incredible Ways to Protect You and Your Family from Hazardous 'Smog'

by TIMC Friday, November 10, 2017

Don't you feel something weird in the atmosphere or a slight heaviness in your chest? Yes! It is because of the pollution which has begun settling down on the earth. Well! If you think slight foggy vision and a misty smell are the only after-effects of smog, then you might be wrong. For those who are unaware, 'smog' is a collective term for smoke and fog. Therefore, it is not only 'winter-fog' which is encircling the atmosphere but also a major part of smoke and pollution is mixed with it.

Environmental pollution is an incurable disease. It can only be prevented

Such poor air quality due to the smog may lead to respiratory problems, heart disease/stroke, uneasiness and fatigue. While people are being advised not to leave their homes in order to prevent any intake of the 'smog', this infected air is taking over everywhere. Even if you are keeping all of your home's windows and doors closed, there is still a huge risk of 'smog' taking over your home. Therefore, in order to make sure that you and your family stay protected from the hazardous pollution, here are some incredible ways to protect you and your family from hazardous 'smog':

Stay Smoke-Free

You must try to ban or avoid smoking inside the house to reduce health risks associated with smoking. The problem is that cigarette smoke and other irritants can build up indoors, causing allergic reactions, asthma, and lung cancer. In fact, indoor air pollution is now considered a serious source of respiratory diseases.

Purify Air

You must consider using an air purifier to remove indoor pollutants (air purifiers with HEPA filters can trap particles as small as 0.3 microns, which is far smaller than the diameter of your hair). Always make sure that the air filter is cleaned every three months as it is very essential to keep your air purifier clean for clean air.

Essential Exhaust Fans

You must use exhaust fans in the kitchen to remove cooking fumes and steam, which can be harmful to your health. A bathroom exhaust fan will also help clear the steam and prevent mold that may cause a variety of health effects. Therefore, always consider installing exhaust fans in your home to help improve indoor air quality, for both your health and belongings

Stay Shoe-Less

While doormats can help reduce dirt, germs and other outdoor pollutants from getting inside, it's always better to adopt a 'shoes-off' policy in your home. Dirt and toxins aside, researchers found 421,000 units of bacteria on the outside of the shoe, which can lead to a number of infections including meningitis, diarrheal disease and pneumonia.

Appliance Check

Also, change air filters and clean out your ducts and chimneys regularly to improve air quality and mitigate the health effects of indoor air pollutants.

Get Oxygize-d
