Every morning and every evening most people do the same thing: brush their teeth. Teeth brushing is typically part of a morning and nighttime routine to maintain the health of your body. Everyone believes brushing their teeth is important, and that the way they brush their teeth is effective at removing plaque and bacteria. But do we just take this belief without validation and hope our teeth remain healthy and cavity free? No! We regularly visit the dentist to verify we are properly taking care of our mouths and we haven’t missed anything that will cause problems. Visiting the dentist even when there is no problem with your teeth is common because people want to stay on top of their health and not be surprised by a necessary root canal that could have been prevented if caught sooner. Often, by the time something is causing pain or noticeably negatively impacting one’s health, it is too late for an easy fix. It is no different with your indoor air quality.   

Just like plaque left on your teeth can cause tooth decay and larger health problems, tiny ultrafine particles in the air can negatively impact your health, building up to trigger allergies, asthma, respiratory problems, infection, and cardiovascular issues. The ultrafine particles, down to 0.1 microns in size, bypass the cilia in the nose and throat to penetrate deep into the lungs and potentially the bloodstream. It is here they cause irritation and inflammation, negatively affecting overall health. But if we can’t see particles that small, how do we know they are in the air before they cause these devastating health effects? AirAnswers® is the answer. AirAnswers®  captures all biological matter down to 0.1 microns in size and the lab then analyzes those particles to give detailed information about the concentration of different allergens, mold, and viruses in the air. That information can be used to take specific and personalized action to improve the air quality and people’s health.  

Don’t wait until it is too late to know what harmful particles are in your air. Perform ongoing monitoring with AirAnswers®  to be proactive with protecting yourself and others.
