Take a Deep Breathe & Breathe in the Fresh Air

Fresh Air

What if we told you that the indoor air in your home might be up to 100 times more polluted than the air outside?  Recent studies by the EPA indicate this. We want you and your family to breathe in fresh air.

Here are a few tips on how you can improve the indoor air quality in your home:

1. Houseplants
Plants are Mother Nature’s air purifiers. Houseplants such as bamboo palm, Chinese evergreen, and English ivy are great for filtering toxins from the air in your home.

2. Salt Lamps
Himalayan pink salt is a natural ionic air purifier. It pulls toxins from the environment and neutralizes them.

3. Beeswax candles
Beeswax ionizes air to neutralize toxic compounds and other contaminants.

4. Eliminate the source
Things like excessive moisture, dust, cigarette smoke, and chemical products are some of the most common causes of indoor air pollution.

5. Air cleaners
Install an air cleaner. From allergies to asthma to the common cold air purification can provide needed relief. Air purifiers can remove up to 99.9% of allergens from the filtered air.

6. Duct cleaning
A simple way to improve the air quality in your home is to have your ductwork professionally cleaned. A professional duct cleaning removes dust particles, bacteria, and allergens from your duct system.

7. Whole house dehumidifiers
Whole house dehumidification systems accomplish two jobs at once by managing the humidity level in your home while reducing the opportunity for mold and mildew to grow.

8. UV germicidal lights
These are a great option for those who struggle with poor immune systems and frequent illnesses. UV germicidal lights kill bacteria and mold at the source.
