Taking a breath of fresh air feels revitalizing, and it’s even recommended for many health conditions.

However, both the outdoors and indoor air can be polluted and threaten your family’s health.

When does the air in your home needs cleaning? It’s more often than you think. After all, you can’t see the threat but viruses and bacteria can be present. 

Some of the methods to accomplish oxygen sanitization are:

Pesticidal devices Such as ozone generators and UV lights. These are instruments or machines that are used to destroy, repel, trap, or mitigate any pests, including bacteria and viruses. 

The EPA (The United States Environmental Protection Agency) does not routinely review the safety or efficacy of pesticide devices, and therefore cannot confirm whether, or under what circumstances, such products might be effective. 

Chemicals Although highly used, these can be harsh for people with underlying medical conditions, such as asthma or other respiratory illnesses, which could be exacerbated by exposure to disinfectants. 

It’s essential to use only the recommended amounts and follow procedures for use. Reduce inhalation exposure making sure you have good ventilation during the use of the product.

Also, avoid mixing chemical products. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. This can cause fumes that may be very dangerous to breathe in. People with asthma should not be present when cleaning and disinfecting with chemical products. 

Ventilation According to the CDC Ventilation and filtration provided by heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems can reduce the airborne concentration of viruses, which can reduce the risk of transmission through the air.

Some of the recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are: 

Running your HVAC system, using an air purifier or a portable air cleaner, and increasing ventilation is not enough to protect yourself and your family. That’s why it’s important to continue following other prevention guidelines to be safe.
