Smoke from Diwali cooking cause Indoor pollution, this is how you can reduce it

Air pollution is automatically equated to outdoor air pollution. But it is very important to know that the air inside the house can also be contaminated. People use a variety of heat sources to cook food, including gas, wood, and electricity. Each of these heat sources can create indoor air pollution during cooking.

Indoor pollution can be worse and more dangerous than outdoor air pollution. Indoor air pollution allows potential pollutants to accumulate more than in open spaces.

One way to control indoor air pollution is to control pollution outside the home.

Here’s how to combat air pollution:

Proper ventilation

Make sure there is adequate ventilation. Although the outdoor air quality may not be great after Diwali, it is very important to have a proper balance. Maintain adequate airflow by opening small windows, turning on exhaust fans, running fans near the window, and keeping vents open.

Do not smoke inside the house

Although the rule should be no smoking at all, if you want to, be sure to smoke outside the house. The air quality inside the house is already very poor, and it is important for the safety of those around you that you do not smoke indoors.

Install an air cleaning system

The easiest way to ventilate a house is to open the windows. But, when the outside air is already polluted, that’s probably not a good idea. An alternative option would be to install portable or central air purification systems, which studies have shown can effectively reduce air pollutants, both those caused by indoor elements and particles that have penetrated from outside.

Dusting and cleaning is very important

Dust mites on things are a major reason for allergens. It is very important to get rid of dust to keep the air clean inside the house. Also, be sure to clean your floors regularly as dust eventually settles on the floor, only to be stirred up again when someone walks on it.

Prevent pests in the house

Insects carry all kinds of airborne pollutants into a home. Be sure to use preventative measures that restrict pests from entering your home.

Use air purifiers

Aside from plants, you can use air purifiers for immediate effect. Air purifiers not only help remove pollutants from the air but also moisture particles that create discomfort during sleep. They also remove radon gas, which is one of the causes of lung cancer.

Herbal tea and other foods

Herbal tea won’t help prevent air pollution, but it will definitely help you minimize its effect on your health. Ginger and tulsi tea can be really beneficial in minimizing the effects of air pollution. Also, consuming a diet rich in vitamin C will maintain your immunity and help you stay fit.
