Air Pollution affects over 90% of the world’s population and is considered as one of the biggest health threats we face in modern life. In the UK alone the official number of deaths associated to poor air quality is a massive 29,000 every year. But what can you do about it? Drive an electric car, turn all your plugs off etc, these will all be great for our planet and the air in the long term but you need to do something to protect yourself now.
The Dangers of the Air Indoors
We aren’t just at danger from the air outside either, these days indoor air quality is often just as bad, if not worse. To try and keep our buildings as efficient as possible we keep them almost air tight so nothing can get out but it keeps stuff we don’t want in. Most people spend around 90% of their lives inside so it’s about time we take it the quality of the air in our homes and workplaces seriously. Our homes are full of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are amongst the smallest and most dangerous of indoor. The larger particles in the air get trapped in your nose and throat but 99% of VOCs are too small to be trapped and are then inhaled and become embedded in our lungs and blood stream which can cause serious health problems.
Where do VOCs come from?
VOCs are in every home and workplace and they are numerous sources that produce them, some are natural and some are manmade, these include;
- Building components such as paints, adhesives, and insulation
- Household products from all your cleaning products to your toiletries
- All your electronics including washing machines, TVs and computers
- Every building has Radon which can cause lung cancer at high levels, particularly for smokers
- Bioaerosols which are biological pollutants that can trigger allergies and illness, they include dust mites, skin cells, pet dander, pollen, viruses, bacteria, mould and gases and no matter how clean you keep your house these will still be present
Constantly inhaling these toxic particles will affect everyone and can cause you to suffer from what is called Sick Building Syndrome, the symptoms of this include nausea, poor concentration, infections and even depression.
Now if only there was a way to remove all the toxic and poisonous particles that are in the air we breathe. Now there is, Hextio is the most advanced compact air purifier and steriliser in the world, neutralising a greater range of dangerous pollutants and odours than other purifiers many of which all do a great job but they usually use HEPA filters which are great at catching large particles like dust, pollen, and pet dander but that’s only dealing with half the problem. A lot of the VOCs in the air such as bacteria, viruses and chemicals are just too small for any filter to be able to capture so something else needs to be done.
This is where the Hextio Air Purification X10 system excels from the rest. Because these dangerous particles are too small to be trapped by standard filters the Hextio uses a more effective technique that uses UV light, titanium dioxide filters and activated carbon which forms a process called photo-catalytic oxidation, which in layman terms, is using ultra violet light to create oxidising agents that decompose the pollutants in the air to leave you with harmless carbon dioxide and water.
The mirrored reactor chamber amplifies the effectiveness of the ultraviolet photons and numerous nano TiO2 chrome coated hexagon filters refract the light whilst creating the high levels of super oxidants, ensuring nothing is missed and put back into the air.
Hextio is simple and easy to use
Hexito Air Purifier is constantly sampling and testing the air for dust, germs and VOC’s and when they are discovered it automatically reacts to air pollution by glowing red and switching the fan on to its highest setting to destroy as many pollutants as possible. The Hextio will stay on this setting until the air is fresh and clean again. As it is completely automatic all you have to do is plug It in and leave it to do its work safe in the knowledge that all the air you breathe is safe.
A Pleasant Smell as well as Clean and Healthy Air
Unfortunately, many people try to deal with poor indoor air because of the nasty smells it has so they believe that the solution is to use aerosols, plug-ins or scented candles. However, the pleasant aromas associated with these products only mask the existing smells. Sprays and fresheners only coat airborne pollutants in even more toxic chemicals, which we then go on to inhale. 3 out of 5 scented candles contain cancer causing chemicals such as benzene and many contain the same hydrocarbons that are found in cigarettes and exhaust fumes, these are not things you want to breathe in! As well as giving you clean air the Hextio includes an optional fragrance filter to fill your room with a pleasant fragrance like the aerosols you have been using but is 100% natural and chemical free which actually enhances the quality of the air in the room instead of poisoning it.
It is important for us to understand the dangers of dirty air in our homes and workplace and just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t a problem. Act now before it’s too late.
