Indoor air quality is one of the most important aspects that contribute to a healthy environment. We directly breathe the air indoors.

There are three basic methods of improving indoor air quality namely:

Indoor air quality should be fresh and healthy to breathe otherwise it could severely affect our body leading to many health problems. There are different ways of maintaining the quality of indoor air. It is essential to keep the indoor air balanced, which means it must not be very moist or very dry as this may be very harmful for our health.

Too much moisture in the air indoors will foster the development of fungus and this can cause several health related problems such as asthma, tissue irritation, infections and so on. The low quality air will also contribute towards damaging your skin as it is always in contact with your skin. In order to maintain the indoor air quality we must use air-conditioners and air de-moisturizers. They can absorb the moisture in the air and keep it clean, safe and healthy. It is recommended to avoid too much ventilation indoors. When the air indoor is very dry, our body can become dry too, causing restlessness. To avoid such conditions, it helps to keep a small bowl filled with water. This can help transfer the moisture in the air and the air quality will tend to remain fresh and good.

It is very important to maintain fresh air indoor and improve indoor air quality, using various products and devices, which are available in the market.

The effectiveness of a particular air cleaner in providing good indoor air quality depends on how efficiently it collects the pollutants from the air and the capacity of air it can draw through the filtering element. The performance of any air cleaner is thus directly dependent on the usage of the product as per the manufacturer's directions.
