The Hidden Ways to Keep Air Quality High

Truth is your home's indoor air quality (IAQ) is often worse than the outdoor air. This could be due to a variety of factors. From poor ventilation to a home full of pets, there are a lot of apparent factors that could be decreasing your IAQ. However, there are some simple but not so clear things in your home that could also be causing your air quality woes, such as your rugs, and cleaning products. So here are three things to consider:

Ditch The Rugs

For allergy and asthma sufferers, wall to wall carpeting could lead to flare-ups and issues. Though regular vacuuming can help reduce it, allergens can still live in the rug's fibers, leading to constant allergies. Tile or wood floors are a better option for those with severe symptoms. If you already ditched the carpets and have throw rugs throughout your home, now is the time to consider deep cleaning them. A seasonal shampoo or wash can help get out any dust or dust mites living deep inside those rugs. Some brands even offer a washable rug option that can be thrown right in the washing machine.

Add Some Greenery In Your Home

Plants are a great aesthetic to your home, bringing in some life and color, but some plotted greens can even help your air quality. Aera palm or aloe vera are just a few options. Do a bit of research, find the one you like the best, and start decorating for better indoor air.

Change up Your Cleaning Products

Though we all have our favorite home cleaner, the truth is yours could be doing more harm than good. Many cleansers, especially if they come in an aerosol can worsen your home's air quality. Nows the time to take a deep look at what you have stocked, read the labels, and consider replacing them with more greener and natural options. Your home's air quality will thank you.
