The “Indoor Air Pollution and Health” published by the World Health Organization pointed out that the current level of indoor air pollution is 5-10 times higher than that of outdoor pollution. 4% of global diseases are related to indoor air quality. Indoor air pollution causes premature death due to diseases, and indoor air pollution has become one of the top ten threats to human health.
Indoor organic pollution is one of the main pollutants. Today we will take a look at what it includes.
Indoor formaldehyde mainly comes from building materials, furniture, various adhesive coatings and synthetic fabrics. Which mainly comes from wood-based panels. Formaldehyde is a gas with a strong pungent odor and a volatile organic compound. Its impact on human health is manifested in irritating the eyes and respiratory tract, causing abnormal lung, liver, and immune functions.
1.2 Benzene and its homologues toluene and xylene
Benzene and benzene series toluene and xylene are colorless, aromatic, and exist in the air in a vapor state. In indoor decoration, due to improper selection of decoration materials or unreasonable construction technology, indoor benzene and benzene series pollution are easily formed. The toxicity of toluene and xylene is mainly harmful to the central nervous system and autonomic nerves. The national health standard stipulates that the maximum allowable concentration of indoor benzene is not more than 2.4 mg per cubic meter.
1.3 Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
Volatile organic compounds (VOC> mainly affect the human body by irritating the eyes and respiratory tract. Skin allergies, causing headaches, sore throat, fatigue and other symptoms. Other volatile organic compounds mainly come from interior decoration materials, daily chemical products, fuels, etc.
For ordinary households, how to control and treat these organic pollutants? Air purifiers are the best household appliances for controlling and treating organic pollutants.
