Stop Using Air Freshener Sprays
Even though you may have grown up using them, indoor air freshener sprays are one of the worst pollutants in the world and they can destabilize the air quality inside any home or office especially if those air fresheners come in an aerosol spray can.
If you plan on scratching air fresheners off your list, you can still keep the inside of your home smelling great by investing in diffusers and essential oils.
Use A HEPA Filter Vacuum Cleaner
There are many excellent things that you can do to improve the indoor air quality of your home but one of the best ways to accomplish this goal is to invest in a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter.
This is an important investment to make because these types of vacuum cleaners have been proven to be more efficient when it comes to removing dust and dirt particles without spewing them out, back into the air of your home.
