Improving Air Quality in Your Home

From allergens to pollutants, there are many triggers than can affect your home’s air quality. And when your house is sealed shut in the middle of winter, matters can get worse. To counteract this common household problem, here are a few ways you can overall improve the air quality at home:

Know the triggers – First things first. Know the types of pollutants in your home. There are many types of pollutants that can affect the air quality in your home, such as combustion pollutants, VOCs, and allergens. The more you know about the air pollutants in your home, the more proactive you can be in improving your air.

Open the windows – As much as possible, crack open the windows in your home (even for a few minutes). Fresh air is the best way to combat poor air in the home, especially in more humid places like the kitchen and bathroom.

Adjust humidity levels – Speaking of humidity, keep levels down to a minimum by either keeping the windows open, turning on a fan or air conditioner, or by using a dehumidifier. This is a key preventative measure when showering or cooking.

Plant some greens – Green plants throughout your home to help reduce VOCs and improve your air quality. Options include aloe, chrysanthemum, and bamboo.
