  • Do Xiluo products produce ozone?
    Do Xiluo products produce ozone?
    • December 26, 2022

    The simple answer is no, Xiluo products do not produce ozone. Xiluo products use PECO technology, or photo electrochemical oxidation, which is designed to improve indoor air quality through the use of a novel photocatalyst. Photocatalysts are substances that speed up chemical reactions when activated by light. Some early photocatalysts from other companies produced ozone and other substances that could be considered pollutants, which is the complete opposite of the scientifically proven effect of Xiluo products. Extensive research over the past 20 years developed a photocatalyst that does not produce ozone or other harmful byproducts. In fact, PECO removes ozone from indoor air. Xiluo products do not produce ozone Xiluo products consist of ozone-free air purifiers. PECO uses a photocatalyst. Traditionally, many photocatalysts were activated by UV-C light, which can produce ozone. Xiluo devices contain UV-A light, also known as “blacklight,” that is proven not to produce ozone. In addition, independent laboratory testing has confirmed that not only does PECO not generate any ozone, it actually removes it from the air. When Xiluo devices are running the natural transition of ozone out of the atmosphere is sped up to make the air cleaner.  Where ozone comes from Ozone is an interesting and somewhat common molecule. It is called a triatomic molecule because it is made up of three oxygen atoms. The oxygen molecules we breathe are diatomic and only composed of two oxygen atoms. Diatomic oxygen is a fairly stable oxygen molecule and makes up about 21% of the air we breathe.  The third atom can only be added when it is split from diatomic oxygen, which takes a lot of energy. Typically this only occurs when diatomic oxygen is hit with a powerful source of light or reacts with a strong chemical and becomes two separate atoms.  Lone oxygen atoms are extremely reactive and quickly join with other molecules such as diatomic oxygen. The third atom is an unstable addition and eagerly reacts with anything nearby to get away from the other two, so ozone doesn’t last long in the air compared to diatomic oxygen. In fact, the half life of ozone in the air is only about 8 hours before it returns to diatomic oxygen. The sun and ozone The most common source of energy that can break an oxygen atom in two so it has a chance to become ozone is exposure to ultraviolet light in the UV-C band from the sun. Both oxygen and ozone absorb UV-C light. As a result, at the edge of our atmosphere there is the ozone layer, which is a mix of oxygen and ozone that absorbs most of the UV-C light from the sun. This is fortunate because exposure to UV-C light can cause health problems in living things. Ozone high above us is a good thing since it absorbs harmful ultraviolet light and cannot affect anything down on the ground. Ozone on Earth’s surface can be harmful because instead of changing back into oxygen, ozone might donate its extra atom somewhere that does damage. Ru...

  • Best Air Purifiers for Mold: Eliminate mold and mold spores
    Best Air Purifiers for Mold: Eliminate mold and mold spores
    • December 12, 2022

    If you want to improve your indoor air quality, incorporating an air purifier into your home can help eliminate harmful germs from the air you breathe. One such pollutant is mold spores. Mold growth doesn’t have to be obvious within your home for spores to exist in the air. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have found that mold can be common in homes and buildings. Spores can enter into your home through your clothing or something as simple as an open door or window. Those spores can travel to moist, dark spaces and begin to multiply. Mold causes health issues ranging from allergies, asthma and more serious respiratory diseases. Will an air purifier help with mold? The short answer is yes, but it’s necessary to choose the best air purifier for mold spores to help do away with the culprits before they cause more serious problems. Not all air purifiers are designed to eliminate mold from the air. This guide will walk you through what is the best kind of air purifier for mold and how to choose one that’s affordable and effective. How do air purifiers help with mold? An air purifier works by running air through the device and catching pollutants in the filters. A purifier can help sweep up and capture mold spores, reducing their concentration. The best air purifier for mold is only as good as its filter and how often you change it. A clogged filter won’t catch the mold spores or other microorganisms that move through the air purifier and can ultimately blow the spores back into your home. One of the most effective filters is a High Efficiency Particulate Airtypes (HEPA). The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says the HEPA filter can capture 99.97% of mold, dust, pollen, bacteria and particles as tiny as 0.3 microns (µm). Signs of mold Although mold can be common in a home, not every household has an issue. Before you go out and purchase the best air purifier for mold and mildew, there are a few warning signs to help you determine if there’s a need to improve the air quality in your home. Smell One of the most obvious signs there is a mold or mildew problem is the lingering odor. If there is a musty or damp smell, there is most likely a moisture and mold problem that needs to be addressed. Allergy symptoms Sometimes the only way you may know if there is mold in your home is by your respiratory health. Some of the most common symptoms that serve as a warning about mold growth in the home include: 1. Coughing 2. Watery, itchy eyes 3. Nasal congestion or runny nose 4. Shortness of breath 5. Asthma 6. Itchy skin or other allergic reactions If you suspect your allergic symptoms may be caused by mold, a doctor can order a test to see if you have a sensitivity due to exposure to mold. Moisture issues Peeling or bubbling paint, rusting in areas or discoloration can be a sign that there are moisture issues in the walls, a closet or other spots of your home. A small leak or a humid zone in your home could attract and grow mold. Features to look for in an...

  • Winter Allergens: The Forgotten Allergy Season for Some Tips
    Winter Allergens: The Forgotten Allergy Season for Some Tips
    • December 02, 2022

    As weather grows colder, you may overlook allergens which are present year-round. There are no specific allergens that increase during the winter season, but there may still be allergens present in your home. Those who suffer from exposure to indoor allergens may experience symptoms due to increased time spent indoors. Indoor Allergens in the Winter Winter allergies come from allergens that get trapped inside your home. These airborne allergens may include dust, pet dander, and mold. Many people don’t realize that indoor air can actually be dirtier than outdoor air. Dust Dust can quickly collect on everything in your home during any time of the year. In the winter, dust collects quicker due to the decreased airflow throughout your home. With the windows closed, the dust doesn’t have anywhere to go but collect on your surfaces and stay inside. Pet Dander If you have pet allergies and a pet, you understand that it is always allergy season in your home. Pet dander can be found on almost any indoor surface like bedding, clothing, and floors. Although this is a year-round occurrence, airborne pet dander allergens may increase in the winter. During the winter, your pets may also be spending more time indoors. Not only will this give them the opportunity to leave more dander in your home, but they’re probably also spending more time cuddling with you. Mold Mold thrives in places with moisture like bathrooms, kitchens, and basements. Not all homes have mold, but those that do will be trapping the mold indoors during the winter months. In addition, the heat may contribute to the growth of mold, since mold thrives in wet and humid conditions. Cockroach Droppings Cockroaches are unsightly pests that can end up in your home, and they are a potential allergy trigger. “The National Pest Management Association reports that 63% of homes in the United States contain cockroach allergens. In urban areas, that number rises to between 78% and 98% of homes.” (American College of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology, ACAAI) Who May Be Affected by Winter Allergens? People who are at risk of experiencing allergy symptoms during the winter include those who are allergic to any indoor allergens, have those allergens present in their homes, and spend time indoors exposed to those allergens. In locations that do not have a very cold winter, allergens may not get trapped indoors as much as in colder climates.  Potential Winter Allergy Symptoms People who are allergic to winter allergens such as dust, pet dander, mold, or cockroach droppings, may experience allergy symptoms. General hay fever or allergic rhinitis symptoms can include the following: 1. “Sneezing 2. Itching of the nose, eyes, or roof of mouth 3. Runny, stuffy nose 4. Watery, red, or swollen eyes “ Winter Allergies Vs. Colds Allergies and the common cold have a lot of similar symptoms and can be easily confused. However, they have differences in their causes, some symptoms, and their timing. Colds are caused by...

  • Air Pollutants Found in Your New or Newly Renovated Home
    Air Pollutants Found in Your New or Newly Renovated Home
    • November 28, 2022

    We often hear about the potential hazards that come with buying or living in an older home, but what about new or newly renovated homes? Having a new home, new furniture, and a fresh coat of paint may make everything seem clean, but your indoor air may not be. Whether you’re moving into a newly built home or renovating an older one, there are steps you can take to reduce the level of air pollutants in your home. Which of These Buildings is Most Likely to Have Indoor Air Pollutants? Between newly built and newly renovated homes, the level of air pollutants will depend on what construction materials have been used and what work has been done. Believe it or not, newly built homes have the potential to host more air pollutants as everything is new and will be going through a period of off-gassing. Off-gassing refers to the airing out of new materials. This often means that volatile organic compounds (VOCs) may be releasing into your home from all sorts of construction materials including, but not limited to, new cabinets, carpet, hard surface flooring, and paint. Typically, home renovations focus on just one area at a time. In most cases, a renovation job has less potential to emit air pollutants than new house construction (depending on the materials). The products being used will make a difference in the level of air pollutants present. Using products such as low VOC paint or phenol-formaldehyde (PF) resin in flooring instead of paints with high VOC or urea-formaldehyde (UF) resins in flooring, will decrease the potential for air pollutants to be emitted into your house. Paint A fresh coat of paint may look great in your house, but the fumes you and your family are breathing in aren’t so great. Many paints contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are released into the air when that fresh coat is applied on. Exposure to paint fumes may cause symptoms including lung irritation, headache, dizziness, and vision problems. Some people may experience more symptoms than others depending on their level of exposure and any prior conditions. If your new home has been painted recently or you are planning to paint it, utilize methods to reduce your exposure like proper ventilation and air purifiers. Flooring There are multiple ways that your flooring could be emitting air pollutants into your home. In a home, the most significant source of formaldehyde is through pressed wood products made using adhesives that containing urea-formaldehyde (UF) resins. Another source of the pressed wood products that can be found in your home is particleboard. Particle board is used as subflooring and using it in your home may lead to the emission of formaldehyde. Caulks and Sealants Caulking and sealants can be used as a method of controlling the outdoor air pollutants from coming indoors, but they may also emit their own air pollutants. Many conventional caulking grouts and sealants off-gas amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).  The type of caulk or sealant...

  • How To Remove Dust From Air and Other Surfaces To Help Improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
    How To Remove Dust From Air and Other Surfaces To Help Improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
    • November 17, 2022

    Tired of pesky dust particles collecting in your indoor spaces and impacting air quality? Read our guide on how to reduce and remove dust from air and other surfaces. We often think of dust in our homes, offices and other indoor spaces as a pesky nuisance to clean ⁠— not as a pollutant. But did you know that dust is made up, in part, of potentially harmful biological and chemical substances? What Is Dust? Dust is made up of a wide range of different kinds of substances, and the exact composition will vary from building to building. Dust forms when these substances collect on our floors, or enter our indoor air and eventually settle. What Is Dust Made From? You may be wondering what dust is made up of. The answer may make you all the more eager to clear the dust out of your indoor environments!  In part, dust consists of our own dead skin cells. Dust can also collect crumbs, fabric fibers or other detritus from our everyday activities. Dust also contains the droppings and body fragments of dust mites ⁠— very small and very common pests that thrive on our dead skin cells ⁠— as well as pet dander (dead skin flakes). Pollen is another common component of dust. Perhaps most concerningly, dust is a reservoir for all kinds of chemicals including heavy metals such as lead and arsenic, volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds (VOCs and SVOCs) and per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) also known as “forever chemicals”. In fact, one study tracing 88 different endocrine-disrupting compounds in household dust detected 66 of them in dust, even more than they found in the air.  Unfortunately, since substances can linger in dust for a long time, dust can be a reservoir for legacy pollutants that we historically used often but now know are harmful. For example, a Canadian study found that dust in older homes were more likely to contain lead presumably because they were constructed when lead was still used in paint, and present at higher levels in the air from its use in gasoline.  These pollutants can come from many different sources. Some sources are in our indoor environment. For instance, chemicals from commercial consumer products can eventually wind up in dust, as they leach or off-gas from the product into our air and onto surfaces. But outdoor pollutants can also infiltrate indoors and settle as dust through outdoor air pollution, or soil containing contaminants such as pesticides, tracked in on footwear. One study, for example, found that 60% of arsenic present in household dust came from ambient air, and the remaining 40% from soil. Areas Most Prone to Collecting Dust Anyone who’s ever found a dust bunny under the couch knows that dust isn’t distributed equally across a building or room. Particles and substances tend to settle and form dust in certain places. Some of them can also be quite difficult to clean, which leads to further dust build-up. Dust often collects on the ground where fallen detritus might gather. Places underneat...

  • Here’s a disturbing fact - 9 out of 10 people breathe air contaminated with high levels of pollutants.
    Here’s a disturbing fact - 9 out of 10 people breathe air contaminated with high levels of pollutants.
    • November 08, 2022

    We all begrudgingly accept air pollution as an aspect of modern life that’s as unavoidable as taxes, but what exactly are we breathing every day? How does it affect our health? And what can we do about it? Airborne pollutants are incredibly diverse in terms of composition, health effects, and sources, ranging from the thick brown smoke belched out of monolithic mega-factories to invisible and insidious threats to your health and well-being.  In this article, you’ll learn about:  1. The 10 most harmful types of airborne pollutants  2. How they impact your health 3. What you can do to protect yourself and your loved ones.  Let’s do a deep dive into the most common and dangerous airborne pollutants that you’ll likely encounter: 1.Particulate matter (particle pollution) Polluted air has floating particles, which cause many problems. Particulate matter (also called airborne particles, particle pollution, or PM) includes dirt, dust, smoke, and tiny drops of liquid. Airborne particles come in three sizes: PM10, PM2.5, and ultrafine. PM10 (Coarse particles) Coarse particles, or PM10, are inhalable particles with a diameter ranging between 2.5 and 10 microns. All that dust floating around your attic or the ominous smoke billowing from a wildfire are great examples of PM10 particles that you can see. These airborne pollutants can affect your throat, eyes, and nose, and can cause serious health effects. PM2.5 (Fine particles) Fine particles, or PM2.5, are inhalable particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 microns, which means they can only be seen underneath a microscope. Common sources of fine particulate matter include pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, and dust from construction and demolition sites. PM2.5 particles are small enough to potentially lodge into your lung tissue, causing respiratory illnesses like asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema. Long-term exposure to these airborne pollutants can also reduce both your lung function and life expectancy. Ultrafine Particles (UFPs) Ultrafine particles (UFPs) are less than 0.1 microns in diameter and make up roughly 90% of all airborne pollutants. But which pollutant is most dangerous – PM10, PM2.5, or UFPs? UFPs are the most dangerous particulate matter because their tiny size makes them extremely inhalable. Once inhaled, they get deposited into your lungs and absorbed directly into your bloodstream — providing a fast-track to any organ within your body. The health effects of these airborne pollutants are particularly serious, increasing your risk for heart attacks and strokes and reducing your life expectancy. 2. Pet Dander We all love our furry friends, but for millions afflicted with pet allergies, it can be a stressful (and stuffy) friendship. The culprit? Animal dander, the microscopic flecks of skin shed by birds, cats, dogs, rodents, and other cuddly critters with fur or feathers. Pet dander is easily spread through your home and out to schools, hospitals, and other public places ...

  • How to Get Rid of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in Your Home
    How to Get Rid of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in Your Home
    • November 01, 2022

    The smells we associate with newness and cleanliness — a fresh coat of paint, a new car, lemon-scented disinfectant — are not as harmless as they may seem. These odors are caused by the release of gases called volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and they come from more sources than you might expect. When these gases build up in indoor air, some of them can contribute to a wide range of health problems. Here, we dig into what VOCs are, where they can come from, and what you can do to remove them from your home. What are volatile organic compounds? Volatile organic compounds are a group of carbon-containing gases that can contribute to indoor air pollution. VOCs are often used in the manufacturing of household products, such as furniture, carpets and electronics. They can also be found in some cleaning supplies, paints, adhesives and other liquids. During the manufacturing process, VOCs often start out as solids or liquids. However, they have a high vapor pressure, meaning that they evaporate easily at room temperature. This evaporation is called off-gassing, and it represents a significant source of VOCs in the home. Throughout the life of a product, the VOCs used during its manufacture will off-gas and affect the indoor air quality. This off-gassing can sometimes — but not always ? cause odors, such as the smell of a new piece of furniture, fresh carpeting or new electronics. However, VOC’s odor, or lack thereof, does not indicate its potential to cause harmful health effects. Why should you be concerned about VOCs? Though VOCs can be found outdoors, they are typically present at higher concentrations in indoor air. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor levels of certain VOCs can be around two to five times the amount you would find in outdoor air. If you are using products that contain VOCs, such as paints and cleaning products, airborne concentrations can increase exponentially and remain elevated for long after you have stopped using the product. VOCs are an air quality concern because of their potential to cause adverse health effects. The severity of these health effects depends on the length of exposure, the type of VOC, and the concentration of harmful VOCs in the air. For this reason, the EPA recommends taking steps to reduce the presence of VOCs in your home. When inhaled, VOC molecules can enter the lungs, bloodstream and tissue within the body. Many different health effects are associated with VOC exposure, ranging from short-term irritation to long-term severe health problems. Children, older adults and individuals with respiratory conditions are the most at risk for adverse effects from inhaling VOCs. Symptoms of VOC exposure can include: 1. Irritation or discomfort in the eyes, nose, or throat; 2. Headaches; 3. Dizziness; 4. Difficulty breathing; 5. Nausea or vomiting; 6. Allergic skin reactions; 7. Fatigue. Several VOCs are known or suspected carcinogens (cancer-causing substances). Many common household VOC...
