When I say the word pollution, what comes to your mind? Do you think your wall paint can increase or decrease the level of pollutants in your home? Today I am going to introduce you to the the new Asian Paints Royale Atmos and will share some tips on how to keep your indoor air clean and healthy.
For me, pollution meant the air I breathe when I go outside my home, which is filled with harmful pollutants from traffic, industries, domestic waste, sewage and many other sources. It was only recently that this misunderstanding was busted when I got to know that the air inside our homes is almost 5 times as much polluted as the outside air. We think that indoor air is pure and clean but there are many indoor pollutants that contribute to indoor pollution.

Most common Indoor pollutants:
There are many factors that contribute to indoor pollution. Some of the most common home pollutants are:
- Tobacco Smoke
- Building construction materials like asbestos
- Carbon Monoxide
- Pet Dander
Now we are going to talk about a product which is changing the way we look at paints. Painting our walls is the first step when we can make a change in the purity of the air inside our homes. Cheap paints contain lead which is a very dangerous pollutant. The paint we choose for our walls makes a major contribution to the level of pollutants inside the house. This paint not only does not add more pollutants to the air but also absorbs the existing pollutants in the air. Excited? Let me introduce you to the new range from Asian Paints.
Asian Paints is known for its beautiful indoor and exterior paints and the new Asian Paints Royal Atmos is trying to make a change in our perception towards indoor home paints. This paint is developed by the scientists at Asian Paints to make our home air cleaner and healthier. You can choose from over 1750 rich and vibrant shades available in this Asian Paints Royale Atmos range.
Asian Paints Royale Atmos is developed using activated carbon technology which purifies the indoor air and absorbs foul smells to make your home smell like home again. It absorbs and reduces the level of formaldehyde in the air and helps you breathe clean air. You can also wash this paint very easily and can see its washability index through the image below:
It also acts as an air freshener as it is the first paint from Asian Paints to have a fragrance and does not have that typical paint smell. The paint releases a fresh and soothing fragrance into your home even after many months of painting. The formula of the paint does not contain any carcinogens, toxins, or mutagens.
There are many ways in which you can improve the quality of the air you breathe. Here are some of my tips & tricks to maintain clean and healthy air inside the home and to improve the quality of indoor air:
- Choose your paints carefully. There are so many different types of paints available in the market and one wrong decision can make you regret your choice in the long term. Invest in a paint which contributes to your home technologically and aesthetically. Asian Paints Royale Atmos reduces the concentration of pollutants inside your home and absorbs foul odors to give you healthy and clean air to breathe.
- Clean your home regularly using a good vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter which sucks pollutants like dust mites, pollen, pet dander, and decreases the concentration of lead pollutants in your home.
- Make it a habit to remove your shoes outside your door as people pick up many outdoor pollutants with their shoes and these pollutants can enter your home and make the indoor air polluted.
- Using a dehumidifier works towards maintaining the humidity levels at an optimum level. Mold and dust mites thrive in humid areas and this step will keep them under control.
- Another major contributor to the inside pollution is second-hand cigarette smoke. Cigarette smoke contains over 4000 harmful chemicals which can lead to diseases like asthma, cancer, heart stroke and other life-threatening diseases. Make your house a no-smoking zone to curb this pollutant and to improve your health dramatically.
- Artificial laundry detergents and air fresheners can make your house and clothes smell good for some time but these products can increase the indoor air pollution in your house significantly. Use fragrance-free or naturally scented detergents and air fresheners to control the release of these chemicals in the air.
- Ventilate your home sufficiently to allow fresh air to enter your home. Fresh air circulation cleans and purifies the polluted air.
- Keep indoor plants like aloe vera, Boston fern, English Ivy, peace lily and other plants which purify the air naturally.
So these are some of the tips and tricks which you use to get better and cleaner air to breathe for you and your family. Breathing clean air can make a significant improvement to your health and Asian paints is helping you to make a change in the way you live and breathe.
