What Are You Breathing?

Dust in AirLouisville Air Quality Service

What are you breathing while you’re googling, washing dishes, relaxing with a good movie, or sleeping? Yes, you’re breathing air, but it may be up to 100 times more polluted than the outside air, according to the American Lung Association. While inside air is usually only two to five times more polluted, that is still huge considering that the American Lung Association’s State of the Air 2016 report showed some Kentucky counties as FAILING. Check it out.

Sources of Indoor Air Pollution

Radon: often found in the bedrock underneath a home and in building materials.
Environmental tobacco smoke: the combination of smoke coming from the burning end of a cigarette, pipe or cigar, as well as the smoke exhaled by the smoker.
Biological contaminants: bacteria, mold, mildew, viruses, animal dander, dust mites, cockroaches, and pollen. Many of these grow in damp, warm environments or are brought in from outside.
Combustion: unvented gas space heaters, wood stoves, fireplaces, and gas stoves emit carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and small particles.
Household products: paints, varnishes, hobby products, and cleaning products all contain organic chemicals that are released during use and storage.
Pesticides: 80% of most people’s exposure to pesticides happens inside.

Here’s a list of pollutants, where they come from, how they affect your health, and what you should do.
