Indoor Air Quality

There is nothing more important than your family. You try to feed your family healthy food so it only makes sense that you would be concerned with the indoor air quality of your home. Here are a few ways you can easily improve the overall quality of the air you and your family breathe on a daily basis.

Clean Floors

Allergens and other chemicals build up on the floor fast. Use a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter and you can reduce the toxins from the floors. These toxins often float from the floor in high traffic areas and make it into the air. The more you clean the floors, the better the air will be throughout the home.

Keep Humidity Down

Dust and mold love damp spaces. If you keep your humidity level between 30-50%, you will be able to keep these items under control and your air more fresh and clean. Run your exhaust fans in the bathrooms or crack the window when someone is showering, cooking, or running the dishwasher to keep the moisture out of the house.

Keep it Natural

Everyone loves a fresh lemon or pine scent, but the synthetic fragrances from cleaners and air fresheners put chemicals into your air. It is best to use natural detergents and soaps and get a non-existent scent in your home.

Avoid Smoke

It is best to keep all smokers out of your house. Even second-hand smoke can damper the quality of the air in your home for quite some time. If you or someone you know has to smoke, do it outside to protect the air inside.

Indoor air quality can become a problem if you let it go for too long. Use these tips to get the highest quality of air possible for your family.
