Pristine virus-free air: why is it critical for babies and seniors?
As a rule, sources of fresh air are places with abundant vegetation - natural oases of clean air. But how do you achieve the same clean and fresh indoor air in the rooms where your parents or children reside?
Where can you find clean air?
Fresh air is essential for living things on Earth, as it is involved in all vital processes.
The obvious suggestions are aeration and clean home maintenance. Also, make it a rule to decorate your house with living plants, secondly, do wet cleaning more often, and thirdly, buy an air purifier and an ozonizer for your home. Only these two devices can help you truly deal with dust, gases, and other household air pollutants in your apartment or house.
For people of absolutely any age, oxygen is the driving force behind all processes in and around the human body. But there are categories of people who are especially in dire need of a sufficient amount of clean fresh air. These are children, pregnant women, and the elderly.
In the case of expectant mothers and babies, clean air is needed for proper metabolism, quick assimilation of vitamins and minerals, and, as a result, for the harmonious development of the fetus, the growth of the child, and the formation of immunity.
Seniors need a clean environment like no one else
In older people, all processes in the body slow down, some functions of internal organs are lost. The elderly suffer from chronic and age-related diseases, while the load on the immune system increases. People of mature age need oxygen to increase the body's resistance and regenerate aging cells.
Unlike young mothers, who regularly and often go outside, have the opportunity to walk for hours in nearby parks or go out of town, it is almost impossible for elderly people living in big cities to do this.
As it’s commonly known, in old age, it is physically difficult (and in cases of disability or problems with movement, it is completely impossible) to leave the apartment on their own. Descending and ascending stairs or in an elevator, fear of losing consciousness while moving along the street, the inability to travel long distances, make walking in the fresh air for the elderly a dangerous adventure, instead of a pleasant wellness relaxation.
The elderly often mention they have to stay indoors for weeks and limit themselves only to airing the rooms using the window. However, exhaust gases, smoke from industrial production and household chemicals make the ventilation hazardous.
Due to the lack of clean air and movement in the modern world, people are aging earlier than they did just half a century ago.
Fresh air and clean air are not the same
For residents of large cities, the event is not easy - to go out for a walk in the fresh air, but to find an ecologically clean corner of nature with an abundance of greenery for walks, far from the roadway, factories, or cleaning structures. And if it is still possible to ensure the circulation of air in the room with the help of ventilation or air conditioning, then breathing pure oxygen in urban high-rise buildings is very problematic. What can we say about long walks in the fresh air for our elderly or seriously ill relatives, for whom pure oxygen is vital?
Five reasons why high-quality air is necessary for seniors:
Clean air provides a surge of energy. Oxygen is necessary for all living things, regardless of age, in order to ensure the process of converting nutrients that enter the body into energy. It is especially important for the body of the elderly to produce energy at the cellular level in sufficient quantities.
Stimulation of the brain. Twenty percent of all the air inhaled by a person is spent on ensuring the normal functioning of the brain since oxygen is a necessary factor for normal brain activity. Clean air not only improves mental activity but also improves the mood, memory, and general vitality of an elderly person.
Restoration and renewal of cells throughout the body. Clean air helps to accelerate metabolism; regenerate damaged cells; assimilate nutrients; rejuvenate tissues and slow down the aging processes.
As you know, for proper breathing, a person needs oxygen, and we exhale carbon dioxide, methane, aldehydes, ammonia, etc. In addition, the air in the apartment is polluted by toxic gases that emit interior items and finishing materials, dust, etc. If the apartment is equipped with windows that are not meant to open, then there is simply no place for fresh air to come from. Gradually, the concentration of oxygen in the ambient air decreases, while the concentration of carbon dioxide and other substances harmful to humans, on the contrary, increases.
If there is no access to fresh air, then we find ourselves in the "atmospheric swamp", we breathe "waste" air. Remember, as they say about stale food: "Someone has already eaten it." The same can be said about the air in a room with double-glazed windows: “someone was already breathing it”. Of course, inhalation of such a dubious cocktail of harmful gases negatively affects the well-being and health of everyone who is forced to breathe stale air on daily basis.
Children especially suffer from poor air quality, since their development, the formation of immunity, and, ultimately, health directly depends on the concentration of oxygen in the air and on its purity. If you stay in an unventilated room for a long time, then blood circulation is disturbed, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, lethargy, fatigue, irritation appear. Ultimately, the constant inhalation of dirty, not fresh air leads to a decrease in immunity, especially in children. Children often start to get sick, chronic diseases appear, for example, all kinds of allergies.
This is why it is so important to regularly ventilate the room. Fresh air strengthens the immune system, ensures the healthy development of your baby, and keeps you healthy. By airing the room correctly and in a timely manner, we improve our well-being and increase our efficiency.
Therefore, by providing your elderly and young relatives with sufficient air quality, you increase their chances of becoming a long-liver!
So how do you properly ventilate the premises?
Your need for clean air every day is obvious. Regardless of the time of year and weather conditions. It is especially important to ventilate the room when the child is sick and cannot go for a walk. Various bacteria and infectious microbes accumulate in the air, which must be disposed of. Now, this can be done using an air purifier and an ozonizer.
Through ventilation is carried out every two hours for at least ten minutes. It is necessary to open all the windows wide open and create a draft from time to time.
Make sure that the temperature in the room does not drop too much.
The Ecoquest air purifier technology unit will supply the required amount of fresh, clean air, having deprived it of dust and gaseous substances.
How do I remove viruses and bacteria from the air?
A way to complete this task is by getting an ozonizer. An ozone blaster is capable of cleaning the air from unpleasant odors, dust mites, pollen, mold. It disinfects, deodorizes and kills viruses. It also removes mustiness. The bactericidal effect of ozonation is immense. Various medical facilities utilize this methodology in their cleaning routines.
Ozonation is not only strictly about disinfection though. In addition, ozone is capable of increasing blood oxygen levels. The tissues and brain work better if efficient oxygen levels are supplied to them.
Why do babies and children absolutely need fresh clean air?
When airing in the winter, the baby should be covered with a blanket, and his head should be wrapped in a scarf or a hat. Warm things can be removed from the child only when the fresh air warms up. The crib should not be near a window or in a draft, as the child can be blown out, and he will get sick.
Do not let your child out of sight while the window is open. Remove from the open window all furniture with which the child can climb onto the windowsill.
Of course, it is quite difficult to follow these rules. Therefore, if you have the opportunity to install a household ventilator in your apartment, then you and your baby will breathe fresh and clean air 24 hours a day without much hassle. The Ecoquest technology unit will not only supply the required amount of fresh, oxygenated air but also clean it from odors, dust, harmful impurities, bacteria, and allergens.
One of them would be attempting to safeguard the interior atmosphere of your own home and nursery in particular by setting up an air purifier.
The machine with multiple filtering barriers eliminates the tracks of viruses, bacteria, odors, and dust in the air of your baby’s room, leaving the air crisp, clean, and pollutant-free.
