Improve Your Home’s Air Quality
While you’re at it, improve the air quality in your home. For example, opening your windows (when the pollen level is not too high) increases circulation and reduces the thickness of dirty air in your home. With the warmer weather in the spring and summer, this should be a breeze. Here are more tips on improving the air quality
in your home:
- Replace air conditioning and heating return filters regularly.
- Fix leaks and control humidity levels to avoid mold.
- Use nontoxic cleaning products like vinegar and baking soda.
- Don’t smoke inside.
- If there are cockroaches in your house, get rid of them. They can cause asthma symptoms.
