There is nothing more important than breathing clean and fresh air, especially inside your own home. You may not even be aware as to how polluted the air inside your home is. It could be affected by dust, animal dander, radon, and other harmful chemicals that just happen to be floating around inside your house. A majority of the pollutants can arrive from items that you purchase, such as a new mattress, furniture, or carpeting. Smoking also contributes to the harmful pollutants as well, which is why you should always make sure to properly sanitize your home. The people that are at most risk of serious allergy problems are children, people with asthma, and the elderly. It is also imperative that you have your air ducts cleaned on a regular basis, in order to prevent any serious health problems. Here are a few helpful tips on how to improve the quality of air inside your home:

  • Regulate the Humidity – You should typically keep the humidity around 30%-50%, to keep allergens under control. It is highly recommended that you get a dehumidifier to help reduce moisture inside your house.
  • Smoke Free is the Way to Be – Secondhand smoke can not only affect your own health, but the health of people around you. Children are most vulnerable to secondhand smoke, and they can develop many serious health problems that include, respiratory infections and even cancer. If you feel you need to smoke, do so on your balcony or garden. Keep smoke outside your home.
  • Clean Your Air Ducts Regularly – There are many harmful pollutants lodged inside your air ducts. It is extremely important to properly clean them out, or have a professional air duct cleaner do it for you. You will improve the overall quality of air all around your house.
  • Test for Radon – Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that significantly raises the risk of lung cancer. Testing is easy, inexpensive, and takes only a few minutes. If you discover a radon problem, there are simple ways to reduce levels of the gas. Radon is also the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States.
  • Keep Your Floors Clean –  Chemicals and allergens can accumulate in household dust for a long time. By using a vacuum with a HEPA filter you can significantly reduce concentrations of lead in your home. Make sure you thoroughly clean walls, carpet edges, and upholstered furniture, where dust accumulates. For best results, vacuum two or more times each week and wash out your filter regularly.
