Clean Air, Clean Life

Air is one of the most vital necessities. People can only live a few minutes without it. It's vital for each Brenham home to have clean air that is free of pollution. Air pollution can create health problems. Some of these problems are mild but others can lead to more complicated issues. Many people turn to air purifiers to manage air pollution. But, the best way to start is learning to identify the top sources of pollution in the home.

Most people know that gas heaters can give off carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is a deadly vapor that kills hundreds of people each year. It is important to keep all the equipment in good condition. As long as all of the equipment is in good shape, there will not be any issues.

But, if a stove is left on when the pilot light goes out, dangerous carbon monoxide can be released into the air. There is also a risk of this deadly vapor being released if there are any cracks in the gas lines.

A lot of people don't know that wood stoves also produce this deadly vapor. The danger usually results from people not keeping their chimney clean. Another common mistake is closing the damper before the ash has time to cool.

Glues and other adhesives can be another source of air pollution. They can emit vapors that cause skin irritation and dizziness. Vapors given off by some adhesives, such as rubber cement, can affect the nervous system.

It's important to know the type of glue or adhesive that you are using. Then, you need to take proper precautions, such as working in a well-ventilated area. Also, make sure the containers are well sealed when not in use.

New carpet is a source of air pollution that is often overlooked. Not recognizing this danger can lead to health risks. New carpet can emit dangerous pollutants into the air. When a company is installing the carpet, the Brenham homeowner should ask for a formaldehyde-free adhesive. This will help reduce the amount of dangerous vapors given off by the new carpet.

But, it will not eliminate them completely. New carpet needs to be given a few days to air out before it is installed. Then, it's important to keep the windows open for a few days after the carpet has been installed.
