The quality of the air we breathe is an important factor in our overall health and well-being. While we often think of air pollution as something that occurs outside, the truth is that the air inside our homes can also be a source of pollution and can have a significant impact on our health.
Indoor air pollution can come from a variety of sources, including household cleaning products, building materials, and even our own bodies. We can also bring in outdoor pollutants like pollen and smoke through open windows and doors. Poor indoor air quality can cause a variety of issues, both to the home and to those who live there, so it is important to pay attention to what’s in your home and what it’s doing to the environment you live in.
To maintain good indoor air quality, there are several things you can do. First, try your best to control the pollution in your home. This can be anything from looking out for mold to checking for dangerous gasses like carbon monoxide. Another important step you can take is ensuring there is adequate ventilation in your home and supplemental air cleaning and filtration are being used. Finally, controlling the moisture in the air and keeping humidity below 60% is a great way to prevent the indoor air quality from declining in your home.
