Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

A room filled with indoor plants.

Did you know that the air inside your home can be up to five times more polluted than the air outside? Yikes! That's why it's important to take steps to improve your indoor air quality, especially if you or anyone in your household suffers from allergies or asthma. In this blog post, Carter Comfort Systems will discuss four ways you can make your home a healthier place to breathe.

Indoor Plants

Indoor plants are a great way to improve your indoor air quality. Not only do they look nice, but they also help to filter out harmful toxins and pollutants. Bamboo palms, snake plants, and philodendrons are all great options for purifying the air in your home.

Change Air Filters Regularly

Another simple way to improve your indoor air quality is to change your air filter regularly. A clean air filter will help to remove dust, pollen, and other allergens from the air. If you have pets, you may need to change your filter more often.

Vacuuming Weekly

Vacuuming weekly is another great way to keep your indoor air quality fresh and clean. Be sure to vacuum under furniture and in hard-to-reach places where dust and dirt can accumulate. This is especially important if you have pets running around the house.

Smoking and Vaping Outdoors

Finally, one of the best ways to improve your indoor air quality is to not smoke or vape indoors. Secondhand smoke is harmful to both you and your family members. If you must smoke or vape, do so outdoors.
