We came across this video showing what may be in your indoor air, causing asthma or allergy attacks. Would you think there was this much stuff in the air that you can’t even see?
How can you improve your indoor air quality?
- Bring in some houseplants–many plants actually scrub harmful chemical compounds out of the air in your home.
- Open the windows–today’s homes are well-sealed to save energy, but they have trouble letting chemicals from cleaning, furniture, carpeting and particles that get in from outside out again without some help.
- Clean your ventilation system–clean ducts and well-functioning fans are essential to keeping your indoor air healthy.
- Find greener options–low and no-VOC paint and cleaning products are available. Don’t be complacent. Try new, healthier products for cleaning and renovating your home.
