Types of Pollutants
Many of people are suffer from allergies to airborne particulates. The most common airborne allergens are pollens, mold spores, pet dander and dust mites.
Cat, dog and bird dander, skin flakes or saliva can cause an allergic reaction. Animal droppings can also be a source of bacteria, dust, fungi & mold. Animal allergens are found mostly in homes where pets are present.
People who have certain kinds of allergic are more likely to have asthma. Whatever cause an allergic reaction, such as pollen or dust mite, can also trigger asthma symptoms. Many of the asthmatic find their asthma symptoms get worse when they’re exposed to certain allergens. Parents who have allergies or asthma often pass along the tendency to have these conditions to their kids.
Mold are present virtually everywhere, indoors & outdoors, it can proliferates rapidly grows in environment humidity above 50% (RH). Molds to grow and reproduce need organic materials as a food source ie: Bread, cooked food, including paper, wood and insulation. Molds release innumerable lightweight spores, which in most eventually become airborne to other destination, it also produce negative healthy effects through inflammation, allergy or infection. Allergy reaction including fever, cough, nose or throat irritation, skin rashes, immune system suppression & etc.
Pollen is the microscopic cells from the male plants needed for reproduction. Pollens can get inhaled easily by human when pollen spread through the air to fertilize plants and tree flowers. Pollen allergies can also trigger or worsen asthma and lead to other problems such as sinus infection and ear infections in children.
The U.S Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) estimates that each day we inhale the equivalent of TWO TEASPOON OF DUST just by breathing the air in our homes. There is many people sneeze or sniffle in dusty areas even at home. That is because the ingredients of house dust can cause allergic reaction includes molds, pet & human dander and cockroach waste.
Dust mites are found in most homes. Dust mites are not the kind of bugs that you can spot and crush, being invisible to the unaided eye. They are very small creatures that live indoor in warn and moist places like the inside of pillow and mattresses. Dust mites are the most frequent cause of perennial allergic rhinitis, at least ten percent of the world’s population suffer from dust mites related allergies. The symptoms include sneezing, itchy, runny nose, respiratory problems, even asthma.
Bacteria & Viruses
Bacteria and viruses are found wherever there is life and have probably existed since living cells first evolved. Bacteria and viruses become aerosolized and spread through the air when we cough and sneeze. These infection particles spread diseases such as common colds influenza and other disease.
Tobacco smoke contains more than 4000 chemicals and many are toxic the human body. At least 60 of these chemicals are known or suspected to cause cancer. Expose to environmental tobacco smoke, significantly increase the risk of heart disease, lung cancer as well as contributing to respiratory illnesses. Children \ Adults are exposed to second hand smoke are at an increase risk of acute respiratory infections, ear problems and more severe asthma.
VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds)
VOCs are dangerous to human health or cause harm to the environment. According to the EPA, VOCs are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids, VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short and long-term adverse health effects. The ability of organic chemical to cause health effects varies greatly from those or highly toxic to those with no know health effect. Key signs or symptoms associated with exposure to VOCs include nose & throat discomfort, headache, allergy skin rashes and conjunctiva irritation.
SBS (Sick Building Symptoms)
Since people today spend most of their time at home or in an office, long-term exposure to VOCs in the indoor environment can contribute to sick building syndrome. In offices, VOC results from new furnishings, wall coverings, and office equipment such as photocopy machines, which can off-gas VOCs into the air. Good ventilation and air conditioning systems are helpful at reducing VOC emissions in the indoor environment. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found concentrations of VOCs in indoor air commonly to be 2 to 5 times greater than in outdoor air and sometimes far greater. During certain activities indoor levels of VOCs may reach 1,000 times that of the outside air. New buildings especially, contribute to the highest level of VOC off-gassing in an indoor environment because of the abundant new materials generating VOC particles at the same time in such a short time period.
