Health Risks In Modern Homes Most People Don't Even Know Exists
     
 

Chlorinated Water

Recent studies show, not only is it dangerous to drink chlorinated water, but it's even more dangerous to shower or bathe in it. Bottled water has become a bit of a trend, but In a recent study by German researchers, nearly 25,000 chemicals were found lurking in a single bottle of water. Many of these chemicals mimic the effects of potent pharmaceuticals inside your body, according to the study published in the journal PLoS One.

It therefore no surprise that scientist recommend home owners to install whole house and under counter water filters. more...

            
 

Indoor air pollution is one risk that you can do something about

Since indoor air may be 2-5 times more polluted than outside air, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Prevention (EPA), this raises great health concerns due to the fact that most individuals spend more than 90% of their time indoors. The term “Indoor Air Quality” (IAQ) refers to the environmental characteristics inside buildings that may affect human health, comfort, work or school performance. Exposure to particulate matter, dust and sand particles, chemicals, combustion products and dampness, in addition to molds, indoor allergens and other biological agents can lead to poor indoor air quality which has been linked to classic symptoms such as eye, nose and throat irritation, cough, chest tightness, headaches, dizziness and fatigue. The long term effects of chronic exposure however is especially important as poor indoor air quality has been associated with allergies, asthma and other respiratory diseases, in addition to heart disease, neurological conditions and even cancer.

Concentrations of toxins that cause cancer can be 200-500 times higher in concentration inside your home than outside your home, according to scientist at The Silent Spring Institute, a research center that studies links between the environment and cancer. To reduce the health risks caused by indoor air pollution scientist they recommend the use of ventilation fans when cooking and HEPA type vacuum cleaners to reduce the health risks of contaminants in indoor air.

Indoor Air Quality and Household Dust

Once upon a time, household dust was just a nuisance. In a pinch, it was swept under the rug. No more. Today house dust is a toxic menace. House dust is a time capsule of chemical contaminants that come into the home. Since most people spend about 69–90 percent of their time indoors, there is ample opportunity for frequent and prolonged exposure to the dust and its load of contaminants.

What May Be Found in House Dust:

Chemicals, bacteria, dust mites, dust mite proteins (feces), cockroach allergens, animal dander allergens (hair, dander, saliva), pollen, mold, cigarette ash, incinerator ash, fibers (wool, cotton, paper and silk), fingernail filings, food crumbs, glass particles, glue, graphite, animal and human hair, insect fragments, paint chips, plant parts, polymer foam particles, salt and sugar crystals, human skin scales, soil, fungal spores, tobacco, wood shavings.

Health Risks

Concentrations of toxins that cause cancer can be 200-500 times higher in concentration inside your home than outside your home, according to scientist at The Silent Spring Institute, a research center that studies links between the environment and cancer.

Documented health risks of household dust includes breast cancer, asthma, allergic responses; suppressed or hyperactive immune systems; impaired respiratory, cardiovascular; nervous, and reproductive systems; irritated or inflamed skin and mucous membranes; cancer of a variety of tissues and organs; and  developmental effects.

Chlorinated Water

As this is not bad enough recent studies also show, not only is it dangerous to drink chlorinated water, but it's even more dangerous to shower or bathe in it. Bottled water has become a bit of a trend, but In a recent study by German researchers, nearly 25,000 chemicals were found lurking in a single bottle of water. Many of these chemicals mimic the effects of potent pharmaceuticals inside your body, according to the study published in the journal PLoS One.

It therefore no surprise that scientist recommend home owners to:

  • prevent dust from recycling into the air and install central vacuum cleaners or use portable vacuum systems with HEPA (High efficiency particulate absorption) filter

  • install whole house and under counter water filters


Built-in Central Vacuum Systems:


Central vacuum systems, also called ducted vacuum systems, central vacuum cleaners, built-in vacuum systems, built-in vacuum cleaners, built-in vacuums or central vacuums and are an innovative way of vacuuming a home. Built-in vacuums are the pinnacle of efficiency, not only saving time and energy, but add value to your home and also eliminating the noise, smell, and costly upkeep of portable vacuum cleaners.

Central Vacuum SystemsTraditional vacuum cleaners allow too much dust to re circulate – on your rugs, furniture and throughout your home. The result: indoor air pollutant levels are two to five times, and in some cases 100 times higher than outdoor levels.

Central vacuum systems are fast becoming one of the more popular household appliances in South Africa because of its ease of service and the convenience of use. You can basically reattach the hose to any outlet and work with it from there without needing to drag the machine around behind you.

Our central vacuum systems are unique and we offer the widest selection of built-in vacuum systems (more than 70 models) in South Africa. We also offer the widest range of hose and attachments, accessories, replacement motors, and spare parts which can also be fitted on Electrolux, Allegro, Beam Built-in Vacuums, Vacu-Maid, Silent Master, Premier Clean, Auskay, and Vacuflo central vacuum systems. central_vacuum_deco_inlets

Whether they are industrial, commercial or residential, our Heavy Duty commercial line will fulfill all your sanitary needs. With the possibility to have 1 or 2 simultaneous users and to vacuum all types of residue. The commercial line is ideal for cleaning commercial and industrial buildings; veterinary clinics; hair salons; hotels; schools; pet grooming facilities; spa and wellness centers as well as automobile dealerships.

Health Benefits of Central Vacuum Cleaners / Central Vacuum Systems

Conventional vacuum cleaners actually contribute to indoor air pollution by releasing into the air bacteria and dust that can spread infections and trigger allergies and asthma, researchers report in a new study. It appears in ACS' journal Environmental Science & Technologybacteria

Australian researchers tested 21 central vacuum cleaners from 11 manufacturers,including two commercial models. The vacuums were six months to 22 years old, and ranged from less than R800 to almost R7,000. Brands included Dyson, Electrolux, Hoover, iRobot, and Sanyo. The researchers measured 62 different air emissions. All released some bacteria, dust, and allergens back into the air.

David Corry, MD, is not a fan of the standard vacuum cleaner. Corry is a professor and chief of the section of immunology, allergy, and rheumatology in the department of medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.

He says that the only kind of vacuum that makes sense is a central vacuum system unit. With these, the motor and filtration unit are located outside of the house, so all of the dust is also filtered outward.

Allergens of dust mites, mold spores, pollen, and pet dander in the air inside your home can cause problems if your family has allergies or asthma. Using HEPA filters can trap these pollutants and may help bring allergy relief.

Whole house water filters:

The use of whole house water filters is fast becoming extremely popular with homeowners. A whole house water filter will treat every single drop of water entering your home and is the most cost effective method to give you peace of mind about the quality of your home water supply.

Aquatic Smart whole house water filters can be configured in a wide variety of styles and price levels depending on what contaminants are in your water, your rate of water use and your budget.
