Air Pollution Poses Largest Threat to Children
It may be common knowledge that outdoor air pollution is incredibly damaging to our bodies, but are you aware of the risks posed by indoor air pollutants to children?
Every year, nearly 600,000 children under the age of five die from diseases caused or exacerbated by the effects of indoor and outdoor air pollution.
Together, outdoor and indoor air pollution are directly linked with pneumonia and other respiratory diseases that account for almost one in 10 under-five deaths, making air pollution one of the leading dangers to children’s health.
This means the risk of asthma, allergies, sinus infections and damage to the lungs remain a threat even when inside your home. Pollutants, toxins and debris are not eliminated by simply closing the doors and windows.
It takes properly working, clean air filters to remove these toxins from your home. FILTERSCAN® WiFi air filter monitor tells you the second your air filters are no longer working by sending an email or text alert to your smartphone, tablet or desktop.
