Understanding the difference between them will help you choose the one that will work best for your particular situation.

As their names say, the main difference between these purifier types is in the area they are supposed to clean air in. It is either entire home or apartment, a separate room, or a vehicle.

Sick Building Syndrome

Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) is a combination of conditions associated with a specific building. Most people think that this syndrome only affects office buildings, which is not true. Residential housing can also have this affect on human health. The reason this condition is mostly thought of as an office-related problem, is because of additional negative health effects caused by office equipment, stress, pressure, etc.

SBS symptoms don’t identify a specific cause or illness. The problems can be localized in a particular room or spread throughout the entire building. SBS symptoms usually disappear after the sufferer leaves the building, or shortly after that.

Building Related Illness

Building Related Illness (BRI) is a similar situation to SBS, but the health problems can be clearly identified with a specific condition and pollution source. Besides, BRI sufferers usually experience stronger and longer negative effects on their health than SBS sufferers even after leaving the building.

Symptoms of Sick Building Syndrome and Building Related Illness

SBS and BRI have very similar symptoms, only BRI tends to manifest in a stronger and longer way.

SBS symptoms include: irritation of the eyes, nose, throat; dry and irritated skin; neurotoxic or general health problems; nonspecific hypersensitivity reactions; odor and taste sensitivity; chest tightness; cough; headache; dizziness and nausea; fatigue.

BRI symptoms include: cough; chest tightness; chills; fever; muscle aches; headache; dizziness and nausea and others.


How To Protect Yourself From Indoor Pollutants

1. Avoid using toxic household products

Bear in mind that almost all household cleaning products use VOCs – Volatile Organic Compounds. These are chemicals, some of them highly toxic, that easily go from liquid to gaseous state and can cause great damage to your health.

Avoid using toxic household solutions, the most dangerous ones being products for cleaning bathrooms and ovens. Read labels carefully, follow the instructions, dispose used products properly. Look for non-toxic supplies, cellulose sponges, especially avoid benzene, methylene chloride and perchloroethylene, ammonia, chlorine, petroleum-based chemicals.

You may consider using homemade cleaning alternatives, most of them are as effective as commercial products. Such products as white vinegar, lemon, cream of tartar, borax, baking soda will help you in your cleaning, polishing chores, add freshness, remove odors without leaving harmful substances behind.

2. Take advantage from air purifying indoor plants

Indoor plants clean air naturally and return oxygen into the air you breathe. Besides, indoor plants regulate air humidity, eliminate toxins, filter chemicals,some of them kill viruses and germs.


Indoor Pollution

The EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency) has been evaluating the dangers of indoor and outdoor air pollution on human body. And they have announced some really alarming statistics that concern us all.

  • According to it, indoor air can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air outside your house (some organizations even raise this number to 100 times!)
  • Indor air pollution has consistently been ranked by the EPA as on of the top five environmental risks to public health.
  • 3000 cases of cancer are caused by exposure to indoor air pollutants every year
  • 50% of ALL possible illnesses are caused or aggravated by indoor air pollution
  • Only 10% of colds and flues are caught outdoors, and 90% indoors
  • Carbon monoxide is the leading cause of accidental poison deaths in North America
  • Asthma treatment is the most popular reason of hospital visits, over eleven million Americans suffer from asthma (which is caused and worsened by indoor pollution)
  • Ten to twelve million Americans suffer from asthma. Asthma is the single largest cause of hospital visits by children.

You certainly don't want to become a part of these horrifying statistics.
