Impact of air pollution

Impact of air pollution

How strong is the impact of air on us (or actually what is in it) let’s trace based on the analysis of some of the most common pollutants

Tobacco smoke

Being in an environment contaminated by the presence of tobacco smoke causes and deepens respiratory problems, for example, intensifying asthma attacks, irritating to eyes, causing headache, coughing attacks, and sore throats. Being in his presence can cause lung cancer.


In humid rooms, hundreds of types of bacteria, mold and fungi can grow. Exposure can cause respiratory problems, cause allergies and lead to the development of asthma and reduce our immunity.
humidity in the room is not only the effect of defective buildings, but also an element resulting from the inflow of moist air from the outside, which stimulates the pollution present in the rooms and causes their development.


The presence of allergens can affect the appearance and aggravation of respiratory problems. Allergens may cause coughing attacks, chest tightness, breathing problems, eye irritation and rash.
Plant pollen is one of the natural allergens, but environmental pollution with cleaning and disinfection chemicals, plant protection products, and especially herbicides, significantly reduces people’s immunity.

Another element causing allergies are chemicals contained in paints and varnishes, chemicals in object-based floor coverings and adhesives as well as furniture veneers. These agents are present in every interior, and in new or renovated interiors their concentration may many times exceed the permissible standards. Dirt particles get into the air and can cause allergies and even poisoning.

Carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2)

Carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) are present in our air, and their presence results from the processes of burning liquid and fossil fuels. Road freight transport, public transport and individual transport are a common source of nitrogen dioxide pollution. Bad combustion processes in especially used internal combustion engines, but also coal combustion in domestic furnaces is a source of the presence of poisonous carbon monoxide.
Taking large doses of CO can lead to death; Smaller doses cause dizziness, headache, dizziness and nausea.
