In recent years, the quality of the air we breathe has become an important topic of discussion among scientists, politicians and communities. The air is measured by an air quality index that most of us can find in our local daily paper. There is no dispute that polluted air is harmful to our health.
But what about the air we breathe indoors? While you may think that the air inside your home is cleaner –think again. Indoor air contains pollutants and harmful substances; some of which emanate from objects and materials we live with everyday: new furniture, cleaning supplies, paint, and pets. These indoor air pollutants can aggravate allergies, transmit germs and even worsen conditions such as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS)
Multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) is a chronic medical condition characterized by symptoms attributed to low-level chemical exposure. Common sources include pesticides, plastics, synthetic fabrics, scented products, petroleum products, and paint fumes. Photox’s PCO technology significantly reduces or eliminates these types of volatile organic compounds.
What’s in your air:
- mold spores
- volatile organic compounds (harmful gases emitted by certain products)
Indoor air pollutants
- carbon monoxide
