Spring is here and with it comes pollens and more pollutants that can affect the indoor air quality of your home.
If you’re concerned about indoor air quality, this article will provide you with several tips you can use to significantly improve the quality of the air inside your home.
Tip #1 – Invest in House Plants
House plants are natural air filters and every home should have these plants:
- English Ivy
- Rubber Tree
- Snake Plant
- Bamboo Palm
- Red-Edged Dracaena
These plants all can be purchased online or at a nursery near you!
Thankfully, in today’s world, you can also find most of these house plants at local stores like Home Depot and Walmart if you buy them early enough in the year.
Tip #2 – Crack the Windows and Keep Your Floors Clean
One of the best things you can do especially if you’re gone all day at work is to keep one of the windows in your home cracked open. This will allow fresh air to circulate inside of your home and avoid the same stale air being constantly recirculated.
Besides keeping one or more windows in your home cracked during the day, you should regularly clean your floors. Dust always settles on the floor and gets stirred up with regular foot traffic in a house and can cause major problems for people with allergies.
Tip #3 – Turn Your Blower On
Last of all, another easy thing you can do to improve the indoor air quality of your home is to turn your HVAC’s blower on.
Turning the blower on will keep the air inside your home is circulated and dust or other indoor pollutants are trapped in your HVAC’s air filter.
