I know many people are struggling with this crazy winter weather we have had lately. If you live up north, the conditions have been much worse than you are typically accustomed to. If you are in the south, you have had snow and ice like you have not seen in years. When the weather is this harsh, obviously we do not open our windows to let the fresh air in. When we keep our windows closed, we are keeping impure air trapped inside. You may not know this, but the air inside our homes can be more polluted than the air outside. This can be especially dangerous for people with allergies, young children and older adults. In order to improve the air quality in your home, here are a few tips for you:
3 Ways To Improve The Air Quality In Your Home
- Vacuums With HEPA Filters: By replacing your old vacuum in the house with a model which uses a high quality HEPA filter, you can cut a lot of allergens. There are a lot of yuckky things in the air that will accumulate on the floor like dust mites, pet dander, pollen and certain chemicals. By using a vacuum with strong suction power coupled with a HEPA filter, you can cut this by a large amount.
- Live House Plants: Live house plants are a beautiful way to cut the poor air quality in your home. Not only do plants give off oxygen, they also absorb certain contaminates like benzene and formaldehyde, which is a known carcinogen. They can absorb up to 60% mold spores, bacteria and other airborne allergens.
- Air Filtering Systems: Many homeowners have invested thousands of dollars for high-end air filter systems. These systems clean the air inside your home through a complex filter system installed throughout your home. If you do not have the budget for this or are a renter, there is a much more affordable and workable option. The Fan Buddie can easily turn your ordinary box fan into an air scrubbing machine!
