Unusual Ways To Improve Your Air Quality

Your indoor air can make the difference between illness and wellness, or between comfort and discomfort. While there are a lot of steps you can take to fix polluted air, like installing UV air filters, or dehumidifiers, or air purifiers, there are also some steps you can take to prevent your air from becoming polluted in the first place.

How To Improve Indoor Air Quality

Check out these less than common ways of improving air quality in your home.

  • Take your shoes off –What if we told you that you could be polluting your air with pollen, fungi, bacteria, and even feces by walking in from outside? Trust us, take them off at the door or keep them contained in a mudroom or the garage.
  • Houseplants – Some plants have been known to remove toxins from the air. Without getting too technical, we’ll instead recommend a couple. Try using Bamboo Cane, Corn Plant or the Red-Edged Dracaena. These plants will add some greenery to your home and some fresh air.
  • Clean the carpets - While carpets make a nice addition to the style of any room, they act as dirt traps. The best way to clean them is with a vacuum, make sure not to shake them out! This way all of the dirt will be sucked up without spreading through your home.

What’s That Smell?

In our experience, mold and mildew are the reasons a house will begin to have a musty smell.

  • Any place that can generate excess moisture can be a problem as mold/mildew generate gasses that give off the smell as they spread.
  • These places include the bathtub, refrigerator, mattress, windows, the couch, your HVAC, air ducts, and many other places.
