5 Simple Ways to Improve Air Quality in Your Home
1. Keep Your Floors Clean
By sweeping, mopping, and vacuuming often, you reduce the pollutants and allergens sticking around in your home. Using floor mats reduces the amount of dirt and pesticides entering your home.
2. Watch the Humidity in Your Home
Pests and allergens love humidity. It’s very important to keep the humidity in your home between 30% and 50%. Using a dehumidifier during the summer can help reduce humidity in your indoor air. Your air conditioner can also reduce your pollen count.
3. Keep Your Home Smoke Free
Smoking not only has a disastrous effect on your health, but on your indoor air quality as well. Cigarette smoke alone contains over 4,000 chemicals that can be released into your air.
4. Test for Radon
Radon is a colorless and odorless gas that significantly increases the risk of lung cancer. It appears in both newer and older homes. Testing is inexpensive and easy.
5. Focus on Going Natural
Sprays and cleaning solutions used in your home can be filled with synthetic ingredients that are harmful to your health. Make sure to check the ingredients before purchasing products.
