Second-hand cigarette smoke is probably the single most important aspect of indoor air pollution. Cigarette smoke contains more than 4,000 chemicals. Research shows that secondhand smoke increases a child’s risk of developing ear and respiratory infections, asthma, cancer, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Smoking pollutes air and threaten our human health and is considered as a major global health problem. Smoking indoor generally makes the indoor air worse because the indoor concentration of pollutants is often much higher than outside open area.
We should try to make our home a no-smoking zone.
Fragrances and Air fresheners
Synthetic fragrances in laundry products and air fresheners emit dozens of different chemicals into the air. In one study, a plug-in air freshener was found to emit 20 different volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including seven regulated as toxic or hazardous under U.S. federal laws.
60% of household dust is brought in from outside – through windows and doors, from pets, and chiefly, from people bringing them in on their persons and shaking them off. Dust are often accumulated in hard to reach areas which we might not clean on a regular basis. Accumulated dust may redistribute due to movement of air or upon contact which will impact the indoor air quality.
Clean your house on a regular basis to remove the dust.
