With all the pollution in the world, we’re guessing you’d like all those harmful chemicals and air particles to stay out of your home. Sorry to say it, but in some cases, your indoor air can be 10 times more harmful than outside air. Luckily, there are some natural ways you can improve your indoor air quality.
Does the air feel stiff and almost suffocating in your home? That’s probably because you’re not allowing for enough ventilation. Every so often, crack your windows and allow fresh air to circulate throughout your home. This replaces the stuffy air and improves your overall indoor air quality.
Plants can naturally remove chemicals and give off fresh oxygen with little to no effort on your part. Certain plants, such as Bamboo, English Ivies, and Weeping Figs, do an excellent job of this, so consider adding a few around your home.
Avoid Chemical Cleaners
You may not always think about this, but what’s in the cleaning products you use every day? Many store-bought cleaners are filled with harmful chemicals that can not only negatively affect the air in your home but also cause respiratory issues. Make sure to only use natural cleaners around your home to avoid this risk.
Use Essential Oils
A few drops of essential oil can make your home smell fantastic while avoiding using harmful chemicals that are found in most aerosol fragrance sprays. Plus, many essential oils also have natural qualities that kill bacteria and mold spores in your air.
Clean Your Air Filters
While your air filters don’t necessarily improve your air quality on their own, dirty filters prevent your HVAC unit from running as well and hold onto mold, pollen, and other irritating air pollutants that would otherwise be gone from your home in the filters were clean.
