A secure home is a happy home!

“Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family; whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” – Jane Howard

Your family and loved ones are the foundation of your inner strength. They are the supporting pillar of your life and their safety is always your utmost priority. However, there are times when you cannot be physically present to take care of them. At such times, there is always a sense of fear for their security and well-being.

You may think that this fear is quite irrational, but the bold headlines, flashing news alerts and rising number of crime rates in India not only question your level of home security but also nudges you to strengthen it. Over the last decade, the crimes related to burglary, domestic thefts, etc has seen a sudden rise. Based on a study done by OSAC (Bureau of Diplomat Security) residential threat is a common security threat in India. Sometimes, it may also result in violence, injury or deaths in some rare cases.

While the officials and the government are doing their bit to reduce the numbers and enhance security in the country, you too need to take a step towards safeguarding your home. This is where a full-proof security system for your home comes into the picture. The common protection system for an Indian society is a security guard and a CCTV camera. You need to go one step ahead and take preventive measures to keep your home safe.

Here are some essential measures you can take that will safeguard your home and your loved ones.

  1. Invest in strong, solid doors

All your doors need to be solid and kick-proof. Go for hard wood that cannot be damaged or broken easily. Ensure all your doors have an interior lock reinforcement so that it cannot be car-jacked from the outside.

  1. Go for a deadbolt

It is believed that a door is only strong as its lock. Invest in a trustworthy brand and bring home a deadbolt to lock your doors perfectly.

  1. Double-check your frames

Ensure that there are not opening or blind spots in your window or door frames that can give easy access to a potential threat.

  1. Avoid French windows or sliding doors.

If your apartment is on a lower floor, sliding doors and windows are an open invitation to thieves and burglars. As they are easy to break and invade your home, it is highly advisable to not go for such doors and windows.

In addition to the above-mentioned measures, you need to make sure that you give your home an infallible security system that lets you live stress-free when you are outdoors.

A complete security system consists of video door phones, alarm systems, CCTV surveillance, access control systems, etc. These mechanisms help you and your loved ones to feel secure and live a stress-free life. In case of any suspicious activity or attempt to unauthorised entry into your home, you can alert the police. Similarly, there are fire alarm systems which can raise an alarm and prevent extensive damage or loss of life, in the event of a fire.

The young minds of India deserve to breathe in healthy air!

“Children are our greatest treasure. They are our future.” – Nelson Mandela

Children are the ones who have the ability to transform the society with their free will, imagination, creativity, and unique thought process. They are our most valuable resources and it is our responsibility to nurture, protect, and educate them.

On one side, the world is inventing brilliant technology to shape these minds, while the other side is failing to keep the environment healthy for them. On the basis of a report, 92% of the world population lives in places where air quality levels exceed WHO limits. Talking about a similar issue, Delhi reports around 30,000 deaths annually due to air pollution, making it the fifth leading cause of deaths in India.

The air quality in Delhi has hit an emergency level of PM 2.5 at 397 mg/cubic metre which is six times higher than the ‘safe to breathe’ limits. The nation’s capital is deluged in fatal smog that has resulted in many accidents and life-threatening diseases.

Studies have shown that children are at highest risk of facing multiple hazards due to this condition. Their vulnerability to respiratory diseases is primarily because of the following reasons:

  1. High exposure to air pollution due to extended time spent outdoors.
  2. They have fragile lungs which are still developing.
  3. They inhale more pollutants per kilogram of body weight than adults.
  4. As respiratory tracts are narrower in children, irritation may result in proportionately greater airway obstruction.

In order to combat this tough situation and safeguard children from any type of allergies and respiratory concerns, parents can take the following measures:

  1. Reduce stepping outdoors

If you see an increased level of pollution outside your home, avoid stepping outside unless it is absolutely necessary.

  1. Invest in an air pollution mask

In case you or your loved ones wish to step outside, do wear an anti-pollution mask to avoid inhaling harmful pollutants.

  1. Increase ventilation

With a proper ventilation system in your home, the indoor air pollution can be minimized to a greater extent. Use an exhaust fan while cooking to suck all the cooking fumes outside your home. You can also go for trickle vents to circulate air in your home and help in reducing the chances of indoor air pollution.

  1. Bring home houseplants

It is believed that houseplants can purify and rejuvenate air in your homes. A few of the preferred plants that can help in cleansing the air inside your home are Peace Lily, Lady Palm, Bamboo Palm, Spider Plant, etc.

  1. Deep clean your home

Ensure your home is thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis. The absence of dust mites, dirt and allergens will keep the air inside your home purified.

  1. Invest in an air purifier

Bring home an air purifier that will purify your indoor making it free from pollutants, contaminants, and smoke.

As breathing gets tough for adults, it gets tougher for the young ones. The future of our country is in danger and we need to do something to take care of it. So this children’s day, let’s take a step towards safeguarding children’s health by taking all the precautionary measures. You can start by bringing home Dr Aeroguard SCPR 300 and ensure that your little ones breathe in purified air.

Which storage tank in your water purifier is safe for you?

With the rise in water pollution and new age contaminants entering our water supply, the need for purified and safe drinking water cannot be overemphasized. Chemical contaminants like lead, arsenic, pesticides and organic impurities easily find their way into the drinking water and can wreak havoc with our health. Conventional purification techniques are not enough to sufficiently purify water anymore. Hence, water purifiers are an essential appliance in our kitchens, today.

As the years have gone by, living conditions have also changed. Residences may not have running water supply or electricity supply may not be constant. Basis these circumstances, various water purifiers are available in the market to meet consumer needs. The water conditions in our country vary from location to location, and so consumers need different purification technology based on their water supply.

There’s a variety of water purifiers and technology available in the market today –

Non- Electric purifiers are typically gravity based and make use of Positive Charge, Resin or Chemical based technology to purify the water.

  • Storage and Non-Storage Water Purifiers – Availability of running water is an important prerequisite when choosing a water purifier for one’s home. In the absence of a constant water supply, storage water purifiers come into play. The advantage that storage water purifiers have is that they eliminate the chore of filling the bottles, jugs or other containers with drinking water. Since the storage of purified water is internal, the fear of recontamination of water is removed.

While storage water purifiers do have an imminent advantage for consumers, an important factor to take into account, when considering the purchase of a storage water purifier is the material the storage tank is made of. Typically, the storage water purifiers available in the market in India today, are made of plastic and stainless steel (metal)

Kitchen tools, appliances and containers are made of two types of plastic – food grade plastic and non-food grade plastic.

Non-food grade plastic is a complete no-no, due to the potential carcinogenic threats it poses to human health among other negative health impacts.

Food grade plastic is made of ABS or Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, which is highly durable, corrosion proof, and does not leach into food or water that comes into contact with it. Food grade plastic is a higher quality of plastic that has increased strength, rigidity, temperature and chemical resistance.

Food grade plastic may cost a little more than the regular plastic, but the benefits of food-grade plastic far outnumber the price difference between the two materials.

There are some manufacturers who make storage tanks out of stainless steel, as well. When choosing a tank made of stainless steel, you need to ensure that there are no joints or welds in the tank.  Not only are stainless steel tanks expensive, but they are also prone to pitting, over a period of time. What’s more, it is very difficult to ascertain when the process of pitting has begun.

Taking this information into consideration, Food grade plastic appears to be the most feasible option when it comes to storage tanks in water purifiers. The Aquaguard & Dr. Aquaguard range of water purifiers feature storage tanks made of food grade plastic. Check out the range of storage purifiers by Dr. Aquaguard now – Book a demo!
