AIR PURIFIER – ALARMING NEED TO INVEST  IN 2022

AIR PURIFIER – ALARMING NEED TO INVEST IN 2022

According to a Lancet study, air pollution in India in 2019 accounted for 1.7 million premature deaths which made up around 17.8 percent of the total deaths recorded in 2019. Two major factors, ambient particulate matter (PM) pollution and household air pollution were primarily responsible for these deaths.

The same study further highlighted the point that economic losses from morbidity and premature deaths caused a loss of US$ 37 billion which is 1.36 percent of India’s GDP. While it’s well known that outdoor pollution plays a big role, the role of indoor pollution as a major threat to people’s health and lives is often underestimated.

Indoor air quality matters a lot. Its significance was never before highlighted as it was during the Covid-19 pandemic. During the Covid-19 pandemic, people were confined to indoor spaces for a prolonged period as a result of which they were not able to access fresh air. Poor indoor air quality subjected many of them including children to various harmful health risks ranging from cancer to eye diseases, and respiratory illnesses like asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, etc.

WHY INVEST IN AIR PURIFIER?

As per the data collated and compiled by IQAir (world’s largest free real-time air quality information platform, based in Switzerland) in 2020 India was ranked third among the most polluted countries in the world, with the levels of indoor air pollutants (as per the Environment Protection Act, 1986), 2.5 times higher than the outdoor levels, and in some cases, 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. That’s certainly alarming!

But what is even more alarming is the average Indian like most of the counterparts across the globe, spends over 90 percent of the time indoors. This means they are exposed to indoor air pollutants which travel through doors and windows. Aside from this, high temperatures and humidity levels in most parts of India are also responsible for bad air quality, especially in confined spaces within homes.

Fortunately, there are remedial measures that can be taken to improve indoor air quality, like Air Purifier. Installing air purifiers greatly helps to reduce the risk of developing pollution-related health issues.


An air purifier, also called as air cleaner, is a device which removes contaminants ranging from dust to dust mites, pollens, and so on, from the air in a room to improve indoor air quality. It uses internal fans to suck in the outside air circulating inside which is then filtered and ejected out as clean air. The cycle of air purification continues and repeats at periodic intervals till the time the air purifier is switched on. 

Aside from this, it uses well-maintained filters to remove airborne germs like bacteria, pollen, dust mites, etc, All of these helps to keep the room and its surroundings clean and free from harmful airborne particles, and allow people indoors to breathe clean, fresh, and pure air.

HOW THEY HELP?

Apart from ensuring protection from harmful indoor air pollutants, air purifiers also help.

PREVENT DUST FROM CONGREGATING

Dust is something that no matter how much of cleaning is done at home or office somehow again reassembles back. It finds its way to congregate inside, accumulate in a single place, and then enter the bodies of people present in the home or office when they inhale air.

The dust can be anything from the dust coming in from nearby streets and roads; to dust from the nearby construction sites; or even adjacent buildings which are in decrepit condition or not maintained properly. Although they look innocuous, they cause terrible health complications ranging from eye disorders to pulmonary issues, breathing problems, and so on.

To prevent these from occurring, invest in an air purifier.

Investing in air purifier will help to trap the dust particles and eliminate most of them before injecting quality air back into the indoor spaces.

GET RID OF BAD AND UNPLEASENT ODOUR

Foul and unpleasant odor and smell can spoil the environment around. They can also be a warning sign of probable risks to human health. Inhaling such odors in the air constantly can decrease a person’s quality of life and sense of well-being.

There are occasions when people smell certain chemicals in the air before they reach harmful levels

To prevent these from occurring, invest in an air purifier.

Investing in an air purifier can help remove harmful micro-sized particles from the air and also get rid of bad odors that emanate from the kitchen or bathroom or from wet and smelly clothes. With an air purifier around, you can cast aside your worries about bad odor and stay assured that you are safe from health issues like breathing problems, cough, nausea, and such like health disorders.

MINIMIZE EXPOSURE TO HARMFUL SMOKE

Smoke of any kind can be harmful to some people’s lungs. Whether the smoke is from cigarettes or vehicles or industries, they can cause serious lung related health issues or worsen the health condition of people suffering from asthma and pulmonary complications.

Even second-hand smoke that is inhaled from near sources of smoke like cigarettes or vehicles or wooden stoves or fireplaces or anything that releases smoke can be harmful. Like for instance, when you mingle with people at gatherings or parties, inhaling secondhand smoke, that is, smoke from their cigarettes, can affect your health. Similarly, a wooden stove or fireplace, though comforting in cold winters, can be a danger as their smoke can lead to eye irritation or coughing while leaving behind a lingering smell around your house.

To prevent these from occurring, invest in an air purifier.

Investing in an air purifier can keep smoke at bay or altogether eliminate them. Eventually, this will help prevent side-effects that otherwise can occur from inhalation of excessive smoke.

PREVENT INFECTIONS FROM PET DANDER

Pets can be a lively addition to your home. But there is a danger side to it as well. Their dander, fur, and allergies can cause health issues. Aside from this, bathing, cleaning and shredding them at periodic levels can expose you to their dander, fecal matter, and urine, which if released air-borne into the environment can trigger unpleasant symptoms like coughing, runny nose, and sneezing; and eventually produce a negative impact on lungs over a long period of time.

To prevent these from occurring, invest in an air purifier.

Investing in an air purifier can produce healthy results in the long run.

It sucks the air in the vicinity, traps such airborne allergens in their filters, negates their foul impact, and eventually releases allergen-free air which will help you breathe clean air.

REDUCE SEASONAL AIRBORNE ALLERGIES

Some people are allergic to even clean air. Their body systems are so delicate that their lungs feel vulnerable to even a whiff of seasonal allergies. This can happen if grasses and trees release their pollen which can turn cause airborne allergens. These allergens if inhaled can badly affect the lungs in such people and cause breathing or chronic obstructive pulmonary complications like hay fever, etc

To prevent these from occurring, invest in an air purifier.

Investing in an air purifier can help catch the pollens before they end up in your home and eliminate them. Aside from this, it can also trap a large part of mold spores (unsightly black spots present in the bathroom) before they travel through other parts of your home.

MINIMIZE EXPOSURE TO ASBESTOS

Asbestos are dangerous. They release particles called asbestos particles which can cause severe lung damage. Many houses still have them, as a result of which their occupants are at risk of inhaling asbestos particles and contracting lung health issues. The danger is even more in the case of houses that have insulation and roofing from the 1940 to the 1960s eras.

To prevent them from occurring, invest in an air purifier.

Investing in an air purifier can help catch such asbestos particles in their filters before they enter body systems thereby reducing the risk of asbestos exposure.

Breathing in air pollutants can irritate airways and cause coughing, shortness of breath, sneezing, chest pain, and other such like instances. Prolonged exposure to air pollutants can eventually put you at risk from serious health issues like cancer, heart attack, stroke, and even premature death in some cases.

FINAL POINT

Remember, even if you are living in a clean area and have a home of office that looks clean, there always remains risks of poor indoor air quality. Exposure to such air can cause or aggravate health issues.

Prevent such instances from occurring by investing in and installing an air purifier that comes with an original HEPA filter built to kill 99.89 percent bacteria and neutralization capabilities that totally eliminate toxins before releasing clean air; and is made by the industry’s most trusted brands.

This will not only make your indoor air cleaner and healthier but will also keep your home or office clean and healthy.
