We often don’t know how much time we spend indoors. On average it is almost 90% of our time, and while a day is nine hours of staying together with other people.
Places, where we spend the time with other people are ideal places for the development and spread of bacteria, dust, allergens, for the presence of irritating chemicals and unpleasant odors.
Other people all the time are passing us. Everyone can be infected, and everyone can be a victim of infection by others. Clean air is one of the elements connecting all persons staying nearby. That is why air cleanliness is so important.
Let’s start with viruses and bacteria, e.g. influenza virus
Influenza spreads within a radius space of about 2 m from the source person – mainly through the droplet path when we are talking, coughing or sneezing. It can get up to distance 50 m, and it is supported by systems forcing air circulation: heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. The influenza virus lives in the air for several hours.
We have more dangerous viruses in the queue including the CoVid-19 pandemic coronavirus and those with earlier pandemics
Allergies and asthma – reactions caused by factors:
- pollen of flowering plants,
- pet hair,
Every eleventh child suffers from asthma, and about 40% of Europeans suffer from rhinitis.
Volatile organic compounds (VOC) – dangerous substances emitted by everyday products such as paints and chemical cleaning products. Where do ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde and xylene come from? They separate from what is supposed to help us, and in fact it is harmful, that is, from scent refreshers, electronic devices, furniture.
VOCs are present in office and home furnishings, in carpets, clothes and even in toys. Virtually every product can contain these substances.
All these threats can be reduced by using effective air purification technologies.
