Cooler temperatures are on their way and that usually means we’re going to be spending more time indoors. We often assume our indoor air is much safer than outdoor air, but this is actually not true in many cases. In fact, because homes are being built more airtight than in the past, we’re actually exposed to more indoor air pollution. Poor indoor air quality can contribute to allergies, asthma and may cause serious long-term health consequences.
Building materials, cleaning products and new furniture are just a couple items that can release toxic chemicals into the air. Dust mites, mold spores and pet dander are microscopic irritants that are found in the air regardless of how well we clean, while smoke from fireplaces, cooking and cigarettes are more visible and damaging. Luckily, there are a couple easy ways to improve your home’s indoor air quality.
