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!
There are also certain house plants that help keep your air clean!  Try a bamboo palm, snake plant, spider plant, peace lily and gerbera daisy. These all help purify the air.
