Spring is soon to turn into summer, but that doesn’t mean allergies are going away. During this time with many of us more cooped up than usual, it’s vital that we all take extra steps to ensure the quality of the air we breathe. These are some tips that can keep your home fresh and allergy-free.
Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
Boosting your indoor air quality doesn’t necessarily mean installing big expensive equipment. There are ways you can improve it much more simply. However, it’s vital that you understand the ways air quality can be poor before you can understand how to improve it. Here are a few examples.
Air that is too dry
Air with high levels of particulates
Poorly Ventilated Air
Moisture can be added to the air through things like cooking, leaving the bathroom door cracked while taking a shower, adding some indoor plants to your space, or letting bath water cool before draining. It’s really as simple as doing this until the air feels a bit fresher. You may notice your skin feeling more moisturized after implementing these habits for a few days. If that’s the case, you know you’re on the right track
Ventilation on the other hand is more of an exercise in mindfulness. It’s easy to forget about areas of your home where air sits and gets stale. Luckily a small fan can be enough to keep air flowing and fresh.
Your ducts should already have filters in them. The problem is that many people don’t replace them as often as they should. You really should be changing out those filters every month if at all possible.
