Staying Safe Indoors for the Holidays

How Does Air Quality Relate to Thanksgiving?

As Thanksgiving approaches, many of us look forward to spending quality time with family and friends while indulging in delicious foods. However, it’s essential to consider things beyond preparing the perfect turkey and setting a beautiful table. In particular, it’s crucial to take measures to stay safe indoors during Thanksgiving, given the ongoing concerns about air quality and respiratory health. As you may already know, indoor air could be 3 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air and in some cases, can even be up to 100 times more polluted according to the EPA. 

During Thanksgiving, we often cook for extended periods of time, leading to the release of various pollutants and odors into our home. These pollutants can include cooking odors, smoke, and even potentially harmful particles such as ozone and formaldehyde. Of course, Thanksgiving wouldn’t be the same without the aromatic smells of roasted turkey, savory stuffing, and mouthwatering pies filling our homes. However, the odors and smoke generated during cooking can pose health risks when they accumulate indoors.


A Solution for The Home

No one wants their guests bothered by cooking odors, and definitely must not expose them to other harmful pollutants that can lead to various health issues, particularly for those with respiratory conditions, allergies, or sensitivities. Even healthy individuals may experience discomfort due to the strong odors and the potential irritation of the respiratory system. Fortunately, there is a simple and effective solution to combat indoor air pollution during Thanksgiving and year-round: air purifiers.
