Sick Building Syndrome

Here at The Wool Room, we're hearing more and more people talking about 'Sick Building Syndrome' and really starting to take more interest in the air that they breathe.

So, what is Sick Building Syndrome and why are more people starting to take note?

Sick Building Syndrome

The indoor air quality of your home could potentially be making you ill. The air we breathe is likely contaminated by Volatile Organic Compounds such as Formaldehyde and Nitrogen Oxide.

Whether you're aware of it or not, increased numbers of these VOC's are causing health issues such as headaches, dizziness, nausea and even fatigue – which then improve when you leave the building.

How do I improve my indoor air quality?

There are numerous ways you can improve the indoor air quality of your home, but non more effective than wool carpets, beds and bedding. This is because wool has a unique ability to be able to lock in these unpleasant VOC's.
In fact, not only does wool neutralise contaminants more quickly and completely than synthetic fibres, wool does not re-emit them, even when heated.

Wool beds, bedding and mattresses and 100% wool carpets can continue to purify the air for up to 30 years.
