Pollution at Home
Posted in the Creole Forum
#1 Jan 30, 2014
Environmental or toxic pollution can cause several types of illness and disease, from minor skin irritations, asthma, or a sore throat all the way to fatal diseases.
The links between asbestos and mesothelioma have been well-documented and occupational benzene exposure has been a hot topic for years because of its being closely associated with Leukemia and Multiple Myeloma. At our law firm, we see a wide range of environmental hazards in the workplace that can be prevented, but there are some simple ways to improve the air quality in your own home as well.
1. Indoor Plants. Highly volatile organic compounds such as benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene can be found in common household items such as paints, carpets, and rubber. Certain types of houseplants serve as excellent air filters for these harmful toxins.
2. Create a hostile environment for mold. Be sure to have proper ventilation throughout the house. It's an excellent idea to install a vent in your bathroom to eradicate dampness, be sure to immediately clean up spills, thoroughly dry your dishes before storing, and act on the first sign of a leaky pipe.
3. Be smoke-free. Smoking cigarettes, particularly inside the home, is obviously hazardous to your health; but even lighting a toasty fire in the fireplace can be a problem if there is inadequate air circulation resulting in fine particle pollution. Be sure your fireplace is ventilated properly and has a chimney that has been cleaned within the last few years.
