Air in our homes is often 2–5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Everyday activities — like cooking, cleaning and playing with pets — all release allergens and air pollutants into the home.
With 24,000 breaths taken every day, the air in our homes can impact our lives. Better air quality helps prevent or alleviate allergies, asthma and respiratory issues, so we can all breathe a little easier.
Philips Air solutions remove four major factors that influence indoor air quality and that can act as triggers for an asthma attack:
PM 2.5 – the microscopic air pollutants that are common triggers for an asthma attack.
Allergens – such as pollen coming in from outdoors, dust mites, pet dander (flakes of skin) and mold spores.
Bacteria and viruses – inhalation can cause influenza, common colds, tuberculosis and other infections, whilst also increasing the risk of asthma.
Air humidity or dry air – this can aggravate allergies, asthma and other respiratory conditions.
