Improving Air Quality
10:8:11 2024-03-24 947

Controlling sources of indoor air pollution is an important way to improve indoor air quality.

1- If you have a gas stove, ensure it is properly adjusted. Gas stoves can introduce air pollution into the home even when it is switched off.


2- Monitor moisture levels in your house. Too much moisture or high humidity can promote the growth of molds and mildew. Mold and mildew can be harmful to the respiratory system and may cause respiratory problems.

  • Devices to measure humidity are widely available at any home improvement or household stores.
  • Purchase and use a dehumidifier if your humidity levels are too high. Remember to regularly empty the water it collects from your house.

 

3- Avoid smoking. Smoking indoors will immediately introduce harmful chemicals into the air. These won't simply vanish with the smoke but will instead cling to many surfaces in the room. If you must smoke, do it outside.

  • Smoking anywhere will harm your lungs and make breathing less efficient.
  • Incense or other scented combustibles also release smoke and reduce the air quality in your home.

 

4- Reduce dust in your home. Removing dust regularly can help reduce the pollutants it contains.

  • While removing dust, ensure your home is well-ventilated to reduce your exposure to these pollutants.

 


5- Make sure your house is properly ventilated. Stagnant air can be harmful to breathe as it may have accumulated allergens, microbes, high concentrations of carbon dioxide or other irritants. Create airflow in your house to let fresh air enter your space and allow stale air an exit.

  • Opening a few windows is the easiest way to create airflow in your house.
  • You may also try to place a fan, either pulling air in or pushing air out, to help increase airflow.
  • Older air conditioners and HVAC systems do not introduce outdoor air to the home, which can mean that pollutants are recirculated. Therefore, ventilation is important, particularly when cooking or painting.
  • Newer HVAC systems may be installed in your home to greatly improve air quality.


6- Get some house plants. House plants are a great and easy way to improve the quality of air in your house. Plants absorb many chemicals in the air that humans cannot breathe, such as carbon dioxide, and release oxygen that we need. Note, though, that houseplants must not be overwatered to prevent mold growth. Some plants are more efficient at removing chemicals than others, review the list and pick your favorites:

  • Aloe Vera.
  • Spider plants.
  • English ivy.
  • Azaleas.
