3 Inexpensive Ways to Improve Air Quality in Your Home
If you don’t think you have a serious problem, you still should strive to improve your home’s environment. Remember, the air inside your home can be even more polluted than the air outside.
Everyone can do these simple and inexpensive things in their homes to improve the environment:
- Open the windows.
Even just five minutes a day can alleviate the accumulation of harmful air pollutants in your home.
- Leave your shoes at the door.
Your shoes could have various pollutants on the soles, including pesticides, fungi, and bacteria.
- Add living plants to your décor.
Plants convert carbon dioxide in the air to oxygen. And the leaves of plants can remove low levels of chemicals such as carbon monoxide and formaldehyde from indoor air.
