What is air pollution?
Air pollution is an aspect of ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION. According to the Federal Emission Control Act, air pollution is a change in the natural composition of the air, in particular through smoke, soot, dust, fine dust, aerosols, vapours or odours. In addition to allergens, viruses and bacteria, airborne household pollutants such as dust, animal hair, house dust mites, mould or synthetic “fragrances in everyday products” also play an important role.
Pesticides can also be detected in the air and are blown over long distances. Air pollution, both indoors and outdoors, is considered by the World Health Organization (WHO) to be the most important environmental risk factor for public health. Indoors air pollution is typically five times worse than outside.
It is known that coarse, fine and ultrafine particles in the air have adverse health effects, especially on the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. The particles come partly from outdoor air pollution, but can also be produced indoors through the combustion of heating and cooking fuels and through reactions of certain volatile organic compounds (VOC).
This leads to well-known health problems such as irritation of the eyes, nose and throat and can lead to catastrophic consequences such as cancer.
Pollutants of biological origin
Microorganisms such as fungi and viruses play a crucial role in the development of various respiratory diseases. Mould fungi release many substances and promote the development or worsening of many diseases such as: bronchitis, COPD, pneumonia, asthma and other allergies, among others. This is not only a problem in damp and old buildings, but can also be the case in new ones. Since we spend around 90% of our time indoors, it is extremely important to maintain the quality of the air we breathe.
Our nose is often, consciously and unconsciously, a clock for our well-being. If we perceive a scent as pleasant, we associate something positive with it and we feel better. If we perceive a scent or odour as unpleasant, we associate negative aspects / memories with it and our mood sinks.
Therefore, not only a pleasant room climate is important, but also the respective scent. Some manufacturers try to deceive our noses by superimposing a wide variety of scents until we can only perceive a vaguely pleasant mix of smells. Due to this overlapping, individual supposedly harmless substances can form unwanted compounds, which increases the load on the room and creates an incalculable health risk.
Formula Different Fragrance Manufacturers
“Fragrances in everyday products” are made from non-natural oils, and the industry is increasingly resorting to synthetic fragrance oils that carry the scent of natural substances but no longer contain any natural essences.
