Indoor air quality is vital to your overall health because you spend as much as 80 percent of your time indoors. Because you spend so much time indoors, you need to maintain the air filtration on your HVAC unit. Consider an electronic air cleaner if you need even better indoor air. Today’s blog from Air Authority discusses simple ways to improve your indoor air quality in addition to high-efficiency air filters or air cleaners.

A clean home keeps common allergens, such as dust, pet dander, dirt, and pollen, out of the air. Vacuum your carpet, drapes, and furniture. Dust countertops, walls, blinds, and flat surfaces. Mop your hard floors, and put a doormat near every exit door of your home so people wipe their shoes when they come inside. All of these things contribute to better indoor air quality because there are fewer particles for you to breathe in.
Some house plants help you remove toxins from the air and provide extra oxygen. They also provide greenery and spruce up the appearance of your home. Consider a bamboo palm, English ivy, gerbera daisy, or dracaena plants. These plants help remove toxins better than others for improved indoor air quality.
Eco-friendly cleaners have fewer harsh chemicals in them. Consider fragrance-free or naturally scented laundry products, floor cleaners, dishwashing soap, hand soaps, and room sprays. Because natural cleaners use little or no petroleum-based ingredients, they improve the indoor air quality of your home.
Sometimes, it’s great just to let fresh air inside. On days that aren’t too hot or too cold, open your windows to get a cross-breeze through the whole home. Open windows help prevent chemicals from building up in your home while creating a well-ventilated space. Excellent indoor air quality can be as simple as letting in some outside air.
