Most of us spend the majority of our time indoors, which is why it’s incredibly important to improve and safeguard your home’s indoor air quality. Improving it can reduce the risk of health complications from indoor air pollutants and make your home more comfortable.
Today, Handyman Connection of Rockville will discuss a few tips from the Environmental Protection Agency:
Use Air Cleaners – An air cleaner can remove the pollutants from indoor air. Fortunately, there are several sizes and types of air cleaners on the market, so you can easily find a product that suits your needs. Consider two factors when shopping for an air cleaner, though. First, determine how much air it draws through the filter. Second, evaluate how well it collects pollutants. Good air cleaners excel in both attributes.
Utilize Good Source Control – Generally speaking, the most effective way to improve indoor air quality is by eliminating the sources of indoor pollution or by reducing the emissions from these individual sources. For example, use building components and materials certified not to release harmful emissions and you can reduce the emissions from your gas stoves.
Improve Your Ventilation – Good ventilation can also lower the concentrations of indoor air pollutants by increasing the amount of outdoor air entering your home. For instance, install new windows and then open these windows wide to let fresh air inside your home. You can also try installing bathroom or kitchen fans to increase the outdoor air ventilation rate.
