by Airbiotics July 06, 2016 4 Easy Steps to Instantly Improve Your Indoor Air Quality Summer is in full swing! Complete with trips to the beach, barbecues and playing outside, which can allow for things that are meant to stay outside to sneak their way inside your home. Things like dirt, pollen or other allergens and pathogens can all play a factor in harming our indoor air quality. How can you prevent these pollutants from having a negative impact on you and your family’s health? Here are four incredibly easy tips to make sure your indoor air quality remains healthy and balanced.
  1. House Plants: Ever considered adding a little green to your home? House Plants are very easy to maintain and most of them require low light and usually don’t need as much water as outdoor plants. They also have several health benefits that can greatly improve your indoor air quality.
    • Succulents: These plants may look small but they can have a big impact on your home! They have been getting lots of attention over the past couple of years more so for aesthetic purposes. However, they are one of a few plants that actually take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. For best use, keep these in your bedroom or living room to keep the oxygen flowing.
    • Ferns: Most of these plants have health benefits such as Vitamin A, C, and the mineral phosphorous, which is important for bone health. The Boston ferns are mostly known for being used indoors. They eliminate toxins like formaldehyde, commonly found in air fresheners, carpets and upholstery. They can also act as humidifiers, counteracting any dry skin from too much air conditioning.
    • Palms: There is a variety of palmed plants that you can choose from for whichever one is the most aesthetic pleasing to you. Most palms act as air purifiers by releasing a high amount of oxygen in the air and removing harsh chemicals. Different palms require different amounts of light and water. Pick the one that’s best for you and your lifestyle.
    • Rubber Plants: Sometimes known to be called Rubber Trees, these plants can improve indoor air quality in multiple ways. Their large leaves absorb bacteria and mold spores floating in the air as well as excess carbon dioxide. These plants also have a unique process of creating extra oxygen by taking in carbon dioxide and combining it with the hydrogen that is made from broken down water in the roots. Careful! These plants are known to handle under-watering better than over-watering.indoor air quality

  2. Eliminate Anything Artificial: Whether it’s air fresheners, cleaners, perfumes or any deodorizers, if it’s artificial, it most likely contains chemicals. Needless to say, chemicals are never something you want filtering through your home’s air and contributing to biofilm that clings to home surfaces. The more natural the product you use, the cleaner your air and indoor environment will remain.House cleaning product on wood table
  3. Dominate the Dust: Air conditioner filters, fans, outdoor pollutants and flakes of protein from our own bodies are all major factors of dust build up that can cause our indoor air to become unhealthy.Dust mites are something to be aware of in your home, especially if you live in a humid climate. Nearly 20 million Americans suffer from a dust mite allergy, and people with asthma are more harshly affected. Dust mites are found mostly in furniture, bedding, carpets and sometimes stuffed toys.
