Most of us have our air conditioners working around the clock all summer long. While this can keep us cool and comfortable, the circulated air is not always the cleanest. The average person spends 90% of their time indoors and breathes 3,400 gallons of air each day! The quality of the air you breathe is extremely important to your health.
Without fresh air in the summer, odors and allergens can build up. Keeping an air purifier working can reduce common allergens and odors that occur naturally in your home. Airfree can even eliminate pet odors so that you may come home to a fresh smelling house.
Some houseplants can also improve your indoor air quality. Aloe vera, ficus, Chinese evergreen, spider plant, peace lilies, and even the Gerber daisy help filter out allergens and air pollutants. These plants can infuse life into your home and fight air pollutants. Consider placing them in the kitchen or bathroom where odors can be strongest.
Planning any indoor projects this summer? Opening the windows to let in fresh air while you do them can help get rid of pollutants and odors easily. Check your home for mold regularly as this can greatly affect your indoor air quality as well.
