Having good air quality in your home is important for your health and happiness. Let’s discuss some ways this can be improved in any home.
First of all, reduce contaminants that can trigger allergies. Do not allow smoking inside. If you have pets, bathe them regularly to cut down on dirt and dander. Clean weekly to remove dust. For those who like to do crafts inside, make sure there is good ventilation if chemicals are being used.
Keep the humidity down in the house. If there is too much dampness, mold can grow and cause serious issues. Replace filters on air conditioners. If necessary, use a humidifier or an air purifier. Make sure your exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathroom are working.
Try using more natural cleaning agents instead of harsh chemicals with strong odors. If possible, opt for less carpeting and more hard surface floors. These will be easier to clean and are less likely to trap pollutants (such as dust mites, mold spores, and pet dander) as carpet does.
When possible, open your windows and doors to air out your home. A little fresh air can go a long way! Bringing plants into your home can also help remove toxins in the air.
