Posted in Air Quality, on August 17, 2016
Did you know that any air purifiers that are available for consumers to buy produce large amounts of ozone, which can cause a lot of harm to your indoor air quality. Not only does a large amount of emitted ozone harm your air quality, but it can be very dangerous to your health as well. You don’t want to bring such a dangerous product into your house especially if you have young children living there.
Ozone can cause damage to your lungs, can worsen asthma symptoms, and cause other related lung issues. Not only is your indoor air quality being damaged by ozone emitting air purifiers, so is the health of the residents of your home. It doesn’t even need to be in large amounts, smaller amounts of ozone can be harmful to a humans health over a long period of time. The ozone levels that fall within the safety standards of most countries are not even effective in removing anything it states, such as removing oder-causing chemicals, viruses, mould, bacterias, and other biological pollutants. This means that owning an air purifier that emits ozone holds no value, because it doesn’t do anything to your indoor air quality except harm it, and damage your health in the process.
