Open Windows to Air Out Clean House
Your home does not breathe well, it can re-circulate air over and over. This can make your air quality poor. Opening windows and breathing in some fresh air can help give your home better air quality. Keeping your floors cleaned, mopped, vacuumed, and even having doormats can help keep your air clean and from particles getting into your air.
Vacuum Carpet Often
When you dust and vacuum regularly, this could be daily or weekly depending on your home. This will help reduce allergens, dust, mites, pollen, and anything that can make your air quality bad. You want your vacuum to have a HEPA filter. This filter is the best if you have asthma or allergies.
Use Non-Toxic Cleaning Products
Most of your cleaning supplies can either be toxic or have fragrances in them that make them strong. Look for cleaning products that are fragrance-free or non-scented this could help eliminate indoor air problems. Some other ideas could be to look for plant-based scents and use baking soda to eliminate odors.
Bathe & Groom Pets
Everybody loves their pets but not everybody loves the hair and dander that comes with those pets. That pet hair and dander that come off of your pet will go right onto your carpet and into the air. Keeping your pet groomed can help eliminate some of that hair and dander. Keeping your home vacuumed and clean will also keep that pet hair and dander to a minimum.
Clean Ceiling Fans
Have you ever looked at your ceiling fans and noticed a line of dust on the edge of the fan blades? Your fans can collect a lot of dust. Make sure in your cleaning routine you take time and clean your ceiling fan blades. This will help reduce that dust from getting airborne when you turn on your fan for the day.
No Shoes on Carpet Rule
Your shoes have been everywhere. The kid’s shoes are at school, outside running in the dirt and grass. Your shoes going for a jog, at the store, or work. Shoes go everywhere and if you are wearing those same shoes inside your house you are bringing in all of that dirt and bacteria. Even though you have doormats that can help reduce dirt and other outdoor pollution, if you have shoes on in the house they can still go throughout your whole house. Take your shoes off when you get home this can help eliminate the dirt and keep your home having better air quality.
