Improving Indoor Air Quality in Your Home

Improving Indoor Air Quality in Your Home

Poor indoor air quality can adversely impact your health. While you have little control over the air quality of the spaces you visit, your home is a different story.

There are several steps you can take to improve the indoor air quality in your home. Here are a few of the best options!

Filter and Ventilate

The first and most obvious way to improve your indoor air quality is to ensure optimal ventilation. This can be achieved by opening doors and windows to ensure that air is appropriately refreshed.

If you live in an area that is prone to airborne contaminants, consider investing in an air purification system. These handy devices filter out impurities in the air and will help you to ensure that the air entering your home is pollution-free.

Clean Your Fabrics

In addition to poor circulation, lackluster air quality is often caused by dust mites. These nasty critters irritate nasal and throat passages and often go unnoticed due to their small size. Fortunately, you can reduce the presence of dust mites by cleaning your bedsheets, curtains, and similar fabrics regularly.

Clean Your AC Filter

Air conditioners are perhaps the most important component of good indoor air quality. They keep the air flowing and eliminate pollen and other irritants before you can inhale them. However, if you do not clean your air conditioner’s filter on a regular basis, the chances are that some of these impurities will escape into your home.


Houseplants add aesthetic value to any home, but did you know they also remove airborne impurities? Additionally, houseplants are a superb source of oxygen. Consider adding a bit of greenery to your home to improve your air quality.
