How clean is the air in your home? The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that people spend 90% of their time indoors but that indoor air quality can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air! Now that’s something to think about. A lot of things can contribute to the quality of the air in your home such as cigarette smoke, excess moisture, toxic cleaners/sprays and other chemicals.
So how can you improve the quality of air in your home? Here are a few ways:
- open windows to create good air circulation
- don’t leave a car idling in the garage
- don’t allow anyone to smoke in your home
- buy a carbon monoxide detector
- fix leaks to avoid a build up of moisture in your home
- use an air conditioner or dehumidifier but remember to clean them regularly!
