Combat Urban Pollution

How does urban pollution affect health in California, and what are the solutions?

Urban pollution, a silent enemy in our modern cities, poses a significant health risk, especially to individuals with respiratory conditions such as asthma. This pervasive issue stems from various sources, including traffic emissions, industrial activities, and other pollutants. In major urban areas like Los Angeles and San Francisco, air quality often deteriorates, leading to substantial health hazards. Understanding and addressing urban pollution is crucial for improving public health and ensuring cleaner, safer environments in our cities.

From Airthings customers

“I bought this air purifier because I wanted a compact unit in my bedroom, that looks good and does the work of cleaning the air. It works as intended, and definitely filters all particles and dust in the air at home.”

Sam P

“We Love it! I want another one. We had this for a week now and noticed an immediate improvement in our sleeping comfort. Not just how we feel when we wake up but our sleep score from our Sleep Number bed shows better results! The unit is well built and looks good too. I want another one for my home office! As for a suggestion for improvement I would like to have the Renew see the results from my View Plus in my bedroom and adjust the fan speed when the VOC's go up.”

Rob R

“"This app is great for receiving air quality alerts and reviewing useful data from my Airthings View. I did have an issue with this app not opening. I reached out to Airthings for help. Don responded quickly to let me know the issue was being resolved as well as offer solutions to get my data in the meantime. Don also followed up with me personally as the issue was resolved just to make sure everything was working and I was satisfied, which I certainly am."”


“"I love the product. Been looking for something like AirGlimpse for a while. Air quality is important since I have small kids. This updated version of the app runs great on my iPhone. I was looking at reviews and I think people are just using the wrong app for the monitor they purchased. I never had an issue downloading and using the app. Just make sure you have one of the 'View Series' monitors if you are using this app."”


“Move into a new home with HIGH radon reading. Bought this (Corentium Home) for surveillance after remediation. Numbers came back the same as professional's equipment. Feeling comfortable that my home is safe for my family.”
