Who are the unnoticed heroes protecting your health?

They should be as small and thin as possible, and carefully hidden so that no one notices them. Nevertheless, they constantly prevent us from breathing polluted air in our homes and workplaces.

With these components being hidden, we also tend to forget maintaining them. Or occasionally replacing them whenever they’ve been worn out. But just as they have a tremendous positive impact on our health when functioning properly, not replacing ineffective ones has a negative impact – on both the energy bill and the indoor air quality.   

But what are these small, yet essential parts, that goes unnoticed? Well, it’s the air filtration. Hidden in your ventilation system. Day in and day out, these brave little soldiers protect you from breathing polluted air – providing fresh air to indoor areas, and enabling you to stay healthy and sound.

foggy-mirror-solution

Recently one of my best friends asked me “Johan, how can I avoid a foggy mirror after showering, we are so tired of wiping it free from fog or waiting for it to clear up!” My friend and I started googling and stumbled across a number of hacks for keeping your bathroom mirror fog free after you have taken a shower.

The tips that we found ranged from putting shaving cream, vinegar, car wax and other things on your mirror, to installing a heating coil on the back of your mirror or simply using a blow dryer to clear up your mirror from fog.

While all these hacks might help you get a clear mirror, you may have bigger problems. However I tried to find a “quick fix” for my friend we had to realise that his foggy mirror is a clear sign that the ventilation in his bathroom isn’t up to standards.
