Have you ever thought about the expression ‘Go and get some fresh air’? What does it mean? Air is all around us but we still need to go somewhere and search to get it?!
Nowadays clean and fresh air is a real value which needs to be achieved by some efforts, for example, by travelling to the sea, mountains or forests as the most useful, fresh and healing air is there. Air in modern cities full of transport leaves much to be desired.
Why clean air is so precious?
Clean air is a guarantee of cleanliness and health of internal organs. But many people have no opportunity to take a walk to the mountains, forest or sea coast every day. Most of us have to spend a lot of time at home, in office or at some educational institution.
Life is life: all of us should do something – study, work, manage business and household with breathing a lot the indoor air.
What is air in our homes like?
Did you know that the air in our homes is actually 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air outdoors, owing to several reasons – dust, pet fur, smoke from cooking, chemical cleaning products, and so many more?
Air is a transparent invisible light gas, and you do not notice it until it is spoiled. Air is the wealth of nature and must be protected from pollution, and people must be protected from dirty air. OKFIL Company is successfully dealing with this issue leading its’ business in the spirit of ecology.
Thanks to the development of OKFIL Company – Window Filters, now clean air can be arranged at any room, even near busy highway or industrial production facilities.
Here are some tips for you to keep indoor air clean and healthy:
1. Take away your shoes.
Keep your shoes at the door closed in special cupboards to avoid carrying chemicals, pollen, dust and other dirt from outdoors into your home.
2. No smoking at home!
Cigarette smoke contains over 4000 chemicals, some of which are carcinogenic.
3. Do not use aerosols.
Air fresheners contain phthalates which are known to be endocrine disruptors. This is especially dangerous for babies and kids whose endocrine systems haven’t fully developed. Instead, use essential oils for fragrance.
4. Clean your walls.
They often get neglected because they may ‘appear’ clean. Use a solution of warm water and vinegar for cleaning your walls, but if your walls are whitewashed, just use warm water instead.
5. Control humidity.
Humidity indoors makes it prone to mould which can cause serious respiratory issues. Dry air also can be dangerous for health. Buy a dehumidifier or humidifier depending on humidity levels in your home and region and make indoor air healthy to breathe.
6. Keep your home well ventilated.
When it is not the best time to leave your windows open (for example, during traffic jams’ time) use ECO-ventilation with the help of OKFIL Window Filters. One of the best ways to refresh the stale air indoors is to let fresh air in; it can be done with OKFIL as it purifies outdoor air from dust and car emissions.
7. Let greens be at your home.
Plants at your window will filter out smoke and dust and will purify the air at home. Though there’s no guarantee that the plants will block out every pollutant, they will certainly contribute to your efforts in keeping your home toxin-free.
8. Choose ‘right’ cleaning chemicals.
Look for non-scented products and herbal ones that get the job done while allowing you and your family to have cleaner, safer air to breathe!
Whether you choose a long-term but effective solution like OKFIL Window Filters or you choose to regularly apply the above tips, we may assure that the air at your home will become cleaner, healthier and more eco-friendly!
