10 habits that may be polluting your air at home - Week 1

Posted in: IAQ

Everyday activities in your home may be negatiely affecting your indoor air quality. At ESG, we have assessed thousands of buildings and have conculded that many of the allergic reactions experienced by occupants are due to personal habits.

The basic idea: almost everything we bring into our home transports particles, chemicals, and moisture into our indoor breathing space. What we do with these items can create an accidental decline in air quality. 

The basic rule of thumb: every action has a direct effect on our air quality. Be mindful of what occurs indoors and react accordingly. 

Over the next 10 blogs we will be providing you common habits that can affect the air in your home.

Vacuuming without a HEPA-sealed vacuum

Not all vacuums are created equal. Without a sealed HEPA system, it is likely that a lot of the smaller particles from your carpet are becoming airborne into your breathing space. This could mean that your vacuuming habits may be creating poor indoor air quality.

A sealed HEPA system contains two key ingredients: a HEPA filter and an air sealed system. Even if the vacuum has a HEPA filter, not much improvement is made if this air leaks around the body, the bag, or the filter.

Smaller particles (0.3 and 0.5 microns) can often be some of the worst sized particles for people with allergies and asthma to breath. Controlling the potential airborne distribution of these particles while vacuuming may greatly improve the indoor air quality.
