We spend a lot of time, energy, and money keeping our houses clean. We buy the latest vacuum cleaners, take the trash out every other day, and never allow a smoking cigarette to walk through the door. We spend all this time and effort because we believe that our homes are our temples. Nobody wants to trash strewn all over their floor or rotten food in their kitchens. People take care to keep their homes clean because that is where they raise their families and spend their time. It makes sense.
So why do so many people forget to spend the same efforts on the air quality in their home? The air in our home is what we breathe every moment we are inside of it. If our air is polluted, we are bringing polluted air into our lungs and our bodies. Yet maintaining good air quality can be surprisingly simple. Here are ten tips to improve air quality in your home.
1. Ban all smoking. Smoking is bad for your health and doing it indoors is bad for the air quality. The carcinogens in cigarettes linger long after the smell is gone. Don't smoke in the house and don't let your guests smoke in the house either.
