Combating Poor Quality Indoor Air
Now that we know where air pollutants lurk, we can take tangible steps to improve the spaces we live and work in.
Test for radon.
Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally within our environment, and, unfortunately, you cannot smell radon. The only way you know you have high radon concentrations is by testing for it.
States with high radon levels include:
- North Dakota
- New York
Keep your home clean!
There is a lot to be said for indoor air quality and the cleanliness of your home. It’s important to regularly vacuum — not only your carpets, floors, and furniture, but your air registers as well. In addition, have your HVAC unit serviced twice a year to help identify any issues and keep moisture levels at a minimum.
Make your home a smoke-free space.
Second-hand smoke is a major pollutant that greatly impacts indoor air quality and your health. If there is a person in your home who smokes, ensure they do it outside (not even in the garage, it can penetrate walls) and close all doors and windows so it doesn’t come in.
Consider switching to all-natural cleaning, household, and personal care items.
The truth of the matter is, these products are some of the biggest offenders when it comes to polluting your indoor air. They’re insidious because they snake their way into just about everything. Common chemical pollutants include:
- Candles with synthetic scents
- Mattresses (including crib mattresses)
- Disinfectant sprays
- Pressed wood furniture
- Vinyl and linoleum flooring
- Air fresheners
- Shampoo and conditioner
- Body wash
- Hand soap
The chemicals in these products are toxic and they leech into the air we breathe and are known for disrupting our hormones and affecting our overall immune health.
Invest in a high-quality air purifier.
It can take some time implementing lifestyle changes to reduce poor air quality, but supplementing with an air purifier is a great way to improve your air quality immediately! Most units are available for both small and large rooms. So, you could begin by investing in air filtration in the most widely used rooms (bedrooms and living rooms) and add more as necessary.
