Dubai, United Arab Emirates — Did you know that the average person breathes around 11,000 litres of air in a day? That’s enough to fill up a normal sized swimming pool! Imagine if all that air that you breathe on a daily basis was of poor quality? That’s actually the case in most homes because indoor air pollution tends to be 2 to 5 times worse than outdoor pollution.
Let’s take a look at the main factors that impact our indoor air quality:
Dust and pollutants in the air
You might not be able to see it, but an excessive amount of microbes and dust particles can be found in many homes when the climate is as dusty and humid as the one here in the UAE.
Allergens and asthma triggers
Allergens are essentially any pollutants that can make allergy symptoms worse, which means that dust can be considered an allergen, alongside things like pet dander, certain plants, pollen and mold.
Mold is one of the most harmful substances that commonly infest households. Even if you are not necessarily allergic to mold, it can be severely harmful to your health if you are exposed to it for a long time.
