Austin Air Purifiers: What are you breathing while you are sleeping?

Posted by Kathy LeMoine

What Surrounds You?

Indoor air pollution in your home environment could actually be more toxic than the outdoor air surrounding your home, even if you live in a highly polluted city like New York or Los Angeles.

Airborne chemicals show up in our homes as toxic gases including:

  • VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
  • PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers)

VOCs

VOCs affect all of us- even unborn babies. In 2005, the environmental Working Group (EWG) commissioned a study of 10 American newborns to determine if there were any toxic chemicals in their bodies. Their analysis detected 287 industrial chemicals!

PBDEs

We are exposed to these airborne chemicals as a result of flame retardant chemicals sprayed on furniture foam and fabrics. PBDEs accumulate in our blood and breast milk. Due to the banning of most of these chemicals in other countries since 1998 and 2004, Americans have levels 10 times greater than residents of the Europe and Japan. The levels are doubling every 2 to 5 years, according to the EPA.

With both asthma and allergies on the rise, the cumulative effects of VOCs and PDBEs should be considered by anyone experiencing these inflammatory conditions. The resulting symptoms may indicate that the body is overwhelmed by toxicity.

If you have to choose one room to eliminate toxic chemicals from, it should be the bedroom. Transforming the bedrooms in your home into healthy retreats can have a major impact on the health and well-being of you and your children. Chemicals in matresses, bedding, furniture, carpeting, and paint all release chemicals into the air, which you inhale while you are sleeping. And since we spending approximately one third of each day in our bedrooms, it makes sense to improve the air quality in these rooms.
