Easy Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
Posted on: November 6, 2015
With everyone so worried about greenhouse gases harming the ozone layer, many Pinellas Park residents forget to consider the indoor air quality of their own homes. The air you breathe is important, and making sure it is as clean as possible means your family will be breathing fewer toxins, chemicals, and allergens.
What Brings In Toxins?
Some of the more common culprits of poor indoor air quality in the Pinellas Park area include smoking indoors, central heating, newer building materials including carpets, certain household cleaning products, poor circulation of outside air, and high levels of humidity inside the home. These can all lead to your family experiencing symptoms such as:
- Frequent headaches
- Sneezing and coughing
- Irritated eyes and throat
Improving Indoor Air Quality
Luckily, there are some pretty easy ways to improve the indoor air quality inside your Pinellas Park home. Leaving the windows open when you are home can be a great way to bring in fresh air and circulate out all of the toxins. Even leaving the windows open for 10-15 minutes just once or twice a day can make a noticeable difference.
House plants are also a simple way to clean your home’s environment. Not only will they filter the air, but some plants even absorb certain airborne toxins too. Some of the best options are English ivy, peach lily, Chinese evergreen, and gerbera daisy.
Another excellent way to ensure the air inside your home stays fresh is switching out your chemical cleaning products for more natural options. Not only is this great for the environment, but this simple switch can help cut out the majority of pollutants. When most commercial air fresheners have a warning to not inhale them, do you really want to keep spraying them in your home?
