The airborne pollution caused by catastrophic wildfire seasons caught many people off-guard and unprepared. Miles away from blaze sites, people were experiencing the health symptoms of inhaling high PM2.5 and ozone (O3) concentrations. Although exposure to wildfire smoke may only last a few days or weeks, the impacts on your health can be much longer-lasting.
During hot summer months, it’s not uncommon to hear air quality alerts announced over the radio or on local T.V. programs. But what do these alerts actually mean? What are the health risks? And how should you react when an air quality alert is issued for your area? We’ve outlined the basics.
At Awair, we believe that knowledge is power. By providing users with direct insight into their air quality, we aim to empower people to create healthier homes, workplaces, and beyond.

Many common building materials and household products can release harmful chemicals, known as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), into your air. When VOCs build up in your home, they can trigger adverse health symptoms and increase your risk of developing serious illnesses. Because VOC pollution is invisible, however, these risks are dangerously easy to ignore. Below, we've outlined six common sources of indoor VOC pollution.
When dust, mold, and bacteria collect in your home, they contribute to indoor air pollution and impact the health and comfort of your space. On the other hand, cleaning your home with toxic chemicals can increase the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in your air and leave you vulnerable to other health risks. A recent study revealed that professional cleaners who use strong chemical sanitizing products on a daily basis are more likely to develop asthma and other serious respiratory conditions. This catch-22 has led many consumers to seek out healthier and more sustainable alternatives, or “green” cleaning products.
Today, diagnosing and treating seasonal allergies (allergic rhinitis) is fairly easy. If you suspect that your symptoms are linked to outdoor allergens, you can take an allergy test to reveal exactly what your immune system is reacting to (and what to avoid). But what if your allergy symptoms don’t track to a clear source or follow a predictable pattern?
