Inquinamento domestico: sai di che si tratta? Ecco come ridurlo!

Domestic pollution: do you know what it is? Here's how to reduce it!

We always talk about outdoor air pollution , but not everyone knows that, however, too in our house forms of pollution that are equally risky to health can nest.

For this, it is very important to keep the situation under control and start adopting a series of good habits to keep the environment healthier and the air purer.

You can easily see it even from hair , right? In these months of forced closure, haven't they gotten dirty easily even at home? Not only when cooking – when you are at the stove it is normal for them to 'feel the pinch', as well as the skin – but also for other reasons that you may not know.

Let's go in order. From some pre-Covid investigations , it emerged that we Italians spend up to 90% of our time in closed environments for work, for study, for relaxation, for sports, for sleeping, for playing… Imagine yourself now!

The problem is that the quality of the air we breathe in homes or offices is not as good as one might think.

Do you know what are the main polluting sources, sometimes unsuspected?

Here are some examples: compounds – such as benzene and VOCs – released by products for household and personal cleaning ; the pollutants that are emitted by furniture, paint, floor finishes ; the fireplaces during combustion; the moulds in wetlands (even the clothesline left open in the house can cause them!) ; the pollution that enters from the outside if you live in city areas; the fumes, odors and particles emitted by the processes cooking food (but we who are in the trade know how to solve this problem!).

Without excessive alarmism, it is important that you pay attention to some daily practices to live in a healthier and cleaner environment:

1. Let's start from the last cause we mentioned: i food cooking processes . If you follow us, you should know it by now: the choice of suitable pans it is essential to reduce pollution. Not only in the air, but also… inside our body! You can save on many things, but not on the quality of the tools of the trade. For this we advise you to take a look at the pans Cucinosano , made with natural materials without PTFE (Teflon), PFOA and Nickel. Another little tip is to use large filtering or breathable hoods to purify the air (but remember to replace the filters from time to time, eh! ) .

2. Turn down the heat And turn it off when not needed : high temperatures favor the proliferation of moulds. By the way, you'll waste even less!

3. Choose, if possible, materials building materials, paints, etc with low emission of chemical pollutants .

4. Change the air very often , especially if you have new furnishings.

5. Install , if you have the opportunity, solar and photovoltaic panels .

6. Do not smoke in the house . We don't need to add anything else, right?

7. Clean the rooms , but without exaggerating with the doses of detergents. And… remember to clean the air conditioner filters too!

8. Invest in a good air purifier can help!

Here, these are just some of the suggestions, simple, but which can really make a difference if you turn them into daily habits.

If the theme is close to your heart, you will find many insights on the web.

And… speaking of hair : it's true, often staying at home they get more dirty. Our advice is to use a mildly aggressive, moisturizing and nourishing shampoo that thoroughly purifies the skin.
