My Neighbour’s Smoke Is Killing Me

22

I have a new neighbour. She is friendly and is a quiet dweller. Everything seems perfect but frankly, her nonstop smoking is making me sick. I was so miserable that I’d pay anything for a good air purifier. I just needed to know which one to get.

Nothing, of course, is better than simply asking her not to smoke indoors. However, if others smoke there is no way that you can force them to kick the habit. Beyond asking her to walk a few hundred feet down the sidewalk, what can I do to protect my health? The best answers I know of are really sealing whatever the cracks are between the apartments and also getting a good air purifier. A good air purifier consists of a high quality carbon filter. Finally, I chose a HEPA air purifier.

By using a HEPA air purifier, I can enjoy clean air in your home. It removes up to 99.97% of ultrafine particulates from the air, and can protect me from secondhand smoke. The trick lies on the activated carbon filter inside the HEPA air purifier. Once I start using one I quickly notice how much easier it is to breathe – and how much better I feel overall.

The need to maintain good indoor air quality in the home is obviously important when some of the residents suffer from respiratory ailments. Respiratory conditions are undoubtedly worsened by secondhand smoke, but even totally healthy people (like me) can suffer problems due to continuous exposure. I had a hard time getting a good night’s sleep when I needed to breathe in secondhand smoke; I went through my days worn out and weary.

Get Rid of Smoke from Your Surrounding Air

4

Let’s say we have a family member who likes to smoke constantly. When he or she is in the house, we hate it. Then, what can we put in the house so other people aren’t consuming the smoke?

We are well aware about the second hand smoke and damages it brings. In addition to the smoke, cigarettes also produce a sticky tar that can build up on furniture and walls causing a brown discoloration (the same theory applies on smokers’ teeth). Fortunately, there’re still plenty of products available to help remove the room of this unpleasant and unhealthy smoke.

There are two factors that need to be considered with cigarette smoke. The first is an ozone producing machine. This neutralizes the odour and toxic components that are released with the cigarette smoke. The second is a HEPA filter. These are effective in filtering out the tar and particulate to keep it from landing on the surfaces in your home. Together, these two items will help remove the smell and keep the tar out of your home, making for an efficient cigarette smoke removal system. Trust it or not, they will do the job beyond your expectations.

Air purifiers or ionizers alone will not effectively remove the cigarette smoke from the air. Ensure that your air purifying device contains both an ozone generating component as well as a filtering system.

Airport and Air Pollution

smokingSmoke Solution>

I am a frequent traveller and have been to many airports. Airport is the first impression of foreigners to a country. A clean and fresh airport can always give a nice start of the journey. For years, I could find myself enjoying different airports and sometimes found it even nicer to have an overnight sleep there than a local hostel. However, in recent years I witnessed some unpleasant changes.

Demand for air travel is now higher than ever, thanks to cheaper tickets and easier technology. Anyway, the growing demand has mainly led to two consequences: more flights (including those of delayed) and more passengers staying in the airports. These will in turn increase the level of air pollution at airports.

More airplanes mean more sources of pollution. And more people mean heavier ground traffic needed to support air operations: push-back trucks, passenger or staff buses, baggage load, catering vehicles, just to name a few. Most of these articles are powered by diesel engines and operate closely to the airports.

The logic here is simple: airport buildings are ventilated to provide breathing air for our comfort. Large amounts of external air are now drawn into the buildings and this air will be heavily polluted. As a result, I witnessed the overall degrading air quality in some airports.

Controlling passenger flow is not easy. The more effective solution is to equip the airport with highly efficient air filters that can control particular and molecule pollutants. Assess the extent of the problem and tackle it with respective types of air filters. Also find the airport with qualify filters that are satisfy European standards.

Airports are the first check-point of foreign guests, don’t disappoint them.
