You have probably heard a lot about outdoor air pollution, especially in larger cities. Air pollution occurs when pollutants are released into the air. These pollutants include car emissions, pollen, ozone, and nitrogen dioxide. What you may not realize is there is such a thing as indoor air pollution as well. Pollutants that decrease indoor air quality typically include paints, cleaning products, and air fresheners. To combat indoor air pollution, you may want to consider installing a Puradigm air purifying system in your home.

Many people can benefit from improved indoor air quality. Listed below are a few benefits of installing this service.

1. Allergy Sufferers

Pollen is one of the most common types of outdoor allergens. However, pollen can make its way indoors as well, which can make being inside just as miserable for those who are allergic to it. Pollen gets inside through open windows and by sticking to clothing and pets. Besides pollen, other allergens that are commonly found indoors include mold, pet dander, and dust mites. Allergens like these cause a variety of symptoms, such as sneezing, congestion, and sinus pressure.

If you have any seasonal allergies at all, you will benefit from having a Puradigm air purifying system. An air purifying system like this won't remove all allergens from the home. However, an air purifier will prevent the allergens from circulating in the air.

2. Asthmatics

If you have difficulty moving air in and out of your lungs, you may have a chronic respiratory condition called asthma. Along with breathing problems, other symptoms of asthma include:

  • Chest pain
  • Cough
  • Wheezing
  • Throat irritation

These symptoms usually flare up when you breathe in certain contaminants, such as a household chemical, dust, or mold spores.

Since a Puradigm air purifying system traps indoor contaminants such as these, asthmatics can reduce their chances of experiencing an asthma attack. You will also benefit from an air purifier if anyone in your family has other conditions that affect the lungs, such as emphysema or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

3. Children

Poor indoor air quality has a negative impact on children's health, too. One reason for this is that a child's respiratory system is still developing. When children are exposed to indoor contaminants, it increases their chances of getting frequent respiratory infections.

Children might also experience headaches and a loss of concentration as a result of poor indoor air quality. If you have children, a Puradigm air purifying system can help to protect their developing respiratory system and decrease symptoms associated with indoor contaminants.
