We may think of pollution as something that can only impact the external air, however the air inside of our homes can be polluted as well!

When we think of pollution, we typically think of the visible smoke and toxins that come from things like cars and factories. We seldom think about the pollution and toxins that can actually exist inside of our homes. You may not even realize that your air quality is poor until you take the steps to improve it. Here are three ways to improve your indoor air quality.

Source Control

This is typically the most effective way to improve your indoor air quality. You simply start at the source of the pollution and eliminate what is actually causing it. Some things that contain asbestos can be sealed off or enclosed to keep it from spreading into the air. Things like gas stoves can be adjusted so that the amount of emissions that comes out is decreased. This is a cost-effective approach because you don’t have to pay to add anything to the home.

Improve Ventilation

Improving the ventilation in your home allows more outdoor air to come inside. Ventilation helps to control the temperatures inside of your home and removes airborne pollutants from inside. You can do simple things to improve ventilation such as opening windows and running window or attic fans. You can also install updated heating and AC systems that are actually designed to better ventilate your home.

Air Cleaners

You can actually purchase devices that are made to purify the air in your home. In fact, some household plants act as natural air purifiers and can also be a nice decoration for your home. Aside from this, they sell air cleaners that can range from small, table top cleaners to entire-house systems. An effective air cleaner will collect pollutants while also filtering and cleaning the air. Table-top cleaners tend to be less effective than the bigger, more complex models.
