There are many sources of indoor air pollution. In Dubai where people live in air-tight, air-conditioned rooms, pollutants are even more likely to be redistributed inside the home. Knowing where pollutants come from enables you to take appropriate steps in reducing or eradicating them. Combustion equipment. Combustion pollutants are particles or gases that are produced when fossil fuels like oil, natural gas, kerosene, and coal are burned. They can also come from tobacco smoke. Examples of these pollutants are carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and sulfur dioxide. To reduce production of these by-products, keep boilers, furnaces, and stoves in top shape, ban smoking inside the house, and use exhaust fans and vents.
Biological sources. Biological contaminants come from molds, dust mites, animal dander, pollen, cockroaches, and other pests. Mold spores, pollen, and dust mites are often associated with allergies Dubai residents suffer. Pests also carry harmful microorganisms that cause other illnesses. Prevention measures include reducing indoor humidity, adequate ventilation, and maintaining air-conditioning systems. Good housekeeping and availing professional room disinfection Dubai companies provide further help keep these pollutants away.
Building materials. Toxic by-products of common building materials and furnishing include asbestos, lead, and formaldehyde. Ensure that your house is well-ventilated when you are painting and varnishing at home. There are often less toxic variants of building materials which you can use.
Household products. A lot of harmful compounds come from air-fresheners, cleaning agents, commercial disinfectants, adhesives, and sprays. Make your own natural air-freshener. If you are hiring an AC duct cleaning or air treatment Dubai team, make sure they are using eco-friendly cleaning and disinfection solutions.
