We found this great video from Ted.com explaining what is really important in creating a healthy indoor environment. Ecologist and TED Fellow Jessica Green has found that mechanical ventilation does get rid of many types of microbes, but the wrong kinds: the ones left in the hospital are much more likely to be pathogens.

What’s important for a healthy indoor environment?

A healthy indoor environment is very important for human health and well-being. It’s not just because about 90% of our lifespan is spent indoors, but is also to safety against threats and combination of health encountered on a daily basis. These factors are important to maintain a healthy indoor environment.

Fresh Air

Same as house cleaning is important for the healthy indoor environment, fresh air is also as much important. The air in indoor environments can build up a high level of odors, dust, moisture, gases, and other air pollutants. Sometimes, removing of insulations, knocking down drywall and pulling up tile all can also lead to an increase in dust through the indoor environment which is not good for your health. Moreover, adding or removing paint also adds pollutants in the indoor environment. Breathing good quality and fresh indoor air is important for your body’s health that’s why to keep the air safe indoors, fresh outdoor air is very essential to dilute these indoor pollutants. While working at your home and office make sure you wear proper protection and make use of doors, fans, and windows for ventilation.

Sometimes certain kind of smells won’t remove even after home cleaning, so fresh air can remove that odor from the house. It acts as an odor eliminator and removes all the bad smell coming from inside the house. As well as that, providing good air quality in all areas of the indoor environment could prevent many environmental health hazards such as asthma and many other diseases.

Sunlight

Whenever we think about healthy indoor environments, we only think of house cleaning services because cleaning makes everything seems like it has no germs anymore but access to sunlight and daylight in your home is also a vital part of any healthy indoor environment. Sunlight is a great source of increased sustainability. Do you know that sunlight kills potentially harmful bacteria and improves air quality in the indoor environment? Yes! A recent study reveals that UV light can help kill bacteria and very helpful to provide fresh and quality air. Too, we could increase our home’s safety through the sunlight, energy-efficient windows and doors that create a healthier, comfortable, bacteria-free and more sustainable indoor environment. Sunlight has many health benefits also.

Humidity Control

Indoor environment humidity affects the indoor air quality, temperature, health and structural elements of the indoors. Additionally, Increase the level of humidity means to increase the number of viruses and germs. Humidity also has an uncomfortable odor which is sometimes hard to breathe in. Besides, controlling the humidity level not only prevent you from infections but also provides fresh quality air and limits the development of allergen that are the main cause of fungi and mites. Moreover, you can control humidity levels by using a home, industrial, and commercial dehumidifier they work very efficiently and remove all humidity and provide a clean, dry and fresh environment. You can also use an odor eliminator to further prevent the house from the humidity odor.

Cleaning and Sanitizing

Cleaning and sanitizing are very important for indoor environmental health. Home cleaning should be the number one priority for every individual because more than 70% of every person’s time is spent in his home. One thing should be clear in your mind that cleaning and sanitizing both are different from each other. Furthermore, Cleaning only removes dust and other types of soil from a surface such as a plate or a countertop but sanitizing is designed to remove the number of pathogens that make the cause of disease. The sanitizing process is performed after the house cleaning is done. If your surfaces are not clean, the sanitizing process would not be as much efficient. Sanitizer cleans the surface very effectively and kill harmful bacteria and makes the surface clean for two weeks.
