The air indoors is often 2 to 5 times worse than the air outside. Continuous monitoring of indoor air quality is key for minimising negative health effects, preventing illness and increasing productivity, energy and good health.
Fresh air indoors.
By monitoring every day you will know when to ventilate and make small changes to improve the air. VOC air purifiers, VOC free paint and low VOC flooring can also help to reduce the levels. Check that your changes are working in the Airthings app.
Know what to avoid.
VOCs are emitted from everyday household items. Often children’s rooms have high VOC levels due to toys and plastic products. Similarly, unhealthy chemicals can also be emitted from cleaning products, furniture and flooring.
Get the right balance.
If you have damp or mould in your home you are more likely to have respiratory problems, respiratory infections, allergies or asthma according to the NHS. Excess humidity can lead to mould growth, so monitor and maintain healthy levels.

What is Radon?
Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes and offices all over Ireland. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation.
