The air inside homes, offices, and other buildings can sometimes be more polluted than the air outside. Children, people with asthma, and the elderly may be sensitive to these indoor pollutants. Here are some easy ways to improve the air quality inside your home:

Invest in an air purifier

Air Purifiers can help capture some of the irritants that may trigger allergies. While they may not be able to remove the allergens completely, they can cut down on them.

Open Your Windows

Indoor air quality is many times worse than the outdoor air quality. Letting in fresh outside air helps lower concentrations of toxic chemicals as well as carbon dioxide.

Keep Humidity Between 30% to 50%

Monitoring humidity helps limit the growth of mold and the presence of dust mites that pollute the air.

Buy an Air-Filtering Plant For Your Home

Some houseplants can be used to eliminate toxic agents such as benzene, trichlorethylene and formaldehyde from indoor air. These plants include English ivy, variegated snake plant, peace lily and florist’s chrysanthemum to name a few.
