How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

The EPA has found out that indoor air can be 2-5 times more polluted than the air in highly industrialized cities. Indoor air is also more stagnant. While we’d all like to be able to open the windows and get some fresh air, that’s not always reasonable, especially this winter. There are some easy things you can do to increase your indoor air quality and live in a healthier home environment.

Keep Your Home Clean

A vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, great suction and rotating brushes is a great investment in the air quality of your home. Vacuuming once a week with a HEPA-certified vacuum should reduce the dust and allergens accumulating in your carpets and upholstered furniture.

There are some things that sneak by your vacuum no matter how clean you keep your home. If you or someone in your home suffers from allergies, a PureAir™ Air Purification System may be just what you need. This system is a whole-home solution that filters out particles and odors, and destroys chemical vapors – all things that can severely impact respiratory issues.

Air Purifying Plants

Plants are a natural way to clean your air and all plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Also, there are some plants that have been found to also neutralize harmful toxins such as: benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene.

If If you want an air purifying plant for your home, you can find a list of those plants by reading the NASA Clean Air Study. If you have pets, you’ll want to check and be sure any plants you’re bringing in to your home are not harmful to them if they want to give them a taste test.

Keep Your Home Ventilated

Modern homes are built to keep outdoor air out of your home in order to retain energy efficiency. This lack of ventilation results in a build up of air pollutants in your home. While it’s easy to simply crack a window, that may not solve it, which is why we offer a few different ventilation products to help improve your indoor air quality and keep your home’s air clean and fresh.
