How is the air quality in your home? It’s something not many people think about but is an issue that affects the health of you and your loved ones—and the condition of your home.
There are things you can do to improve and maintain your home air quality. Taking preventative measures is a great first step. Vacuum, preferably with a HEPA filter. Clean ducts and vents and change air filters regularly. And nip mold in the bud by stopping it before it starts—squeegee walls after showering, run fans and vents when necessary, and think about getting a dehumidifier for spaces that stay moist, like basements.
Good old-fashioned nature can be your best friend when it comes to home air quality. When the weather is nice, open windows to move out stale air and introduce fresh air. It’s also a good idea to open doors every once in a while to get things moving. House plants can be helpful as well. A NASA study showed that certain plants, like the peace lily, Boston fern, and spider plant, filter air by not only absorbing carbon dioxide but also eliminating toxins.
