What causes people to suffer poor health? When asked such a question, most people refer to things like poor diet, lack of exercise, and genetic factors. However, if you have noticed a decline in your health, it could actually be caused by the air you breathe in your home every day.
You might be surprised to find out how poor the indoor air quality in your home is. There are many seemingly innocent items in most households that can cause concerns with your health. After reading this article, you may want to throw a few items away.
Items Affecting Indoor Air Quality In Your Home:
Paraffin candles, for example, are a major cause of poor indoor air quality in homes. The candles give off two different carcinogen as well as some chemicals that are also found in exhaust fumes. Throw the paraffin candles away. Replace them with soy or beeswax candles scented only with natural essential oils.
Air fresheners are no good for you either, and they are especially harmful to babies and young children. They contain phthalates, which can disrupt hormone function in children and can interfere with their reproductive development.
Your furniture might also be having an adverse impact on the air quality in your house. Any furniture manufactured before the year 2006 was potentially sprayed with fire repellent chemicals which are actually carcinogens. Some furniture is still sprayed with flame repellents today, so always be careful before making a new purchase.
You may now be considering the fact that the heating and air conditioning system you had installed at your home came with an air filter built in. However, most of these do nothing to improve the indoor air quality of your home, because they were only designed to keep the equipment clean.
