Nowadays, we are spending way too much time inside our homes, probably not on purpose, but we are. Have you ever considered what the air quality is in your home? The EPA has ranked indoor air pollutants as one of the top five environmental risks to public health. So, let’s do something about that. Here are Healthy Ways to Improve Air Quality in Your Home that you might want to consider going forward.
Healthy Ways to Improve Air Quality in Your Home
Now that we’re spending more time indoors, it’s not enough that we clean house, vacuum, and dust once a week – It never was for that matter. There’s more that needs to be done if you want fresh, healthy air in your homes. You just don’t know what’s floating in the air. Clean air is nothing to take for granted. Below are healthy ways to improve air quality in your home to consider when wanting to rid your home of toxins.
Invest in a Medical Grade HEPA Air Purifier
I was given the Okaysou Air Purifier for my home because I sought interest in their product and want to purify the air in my house. If I could, and I might, I will put an air purifier in every room of my home. They do make a difference.
The Okaysou desktop air purifier is small enough to be unseen but large enough to make a difference. Its sound is quiet, although I don’t mind a little noise at night, I have a fan for that. The Okaysou is easy to use and easy to understand how to use it. This particular Okaysou air purifier is Model AirMic4s. It’s has a fan speed button, a sleep mode button, and a dimmer button. You won’t even know it’s there. I highly recommend everyone should have at least three air purifiers in their homes, such as the Okaysou Medical Grade Air Purifier.

I have given you some ideas from me as well as from several other “green” bloggers on how you can improve air quality in your home, but you also may want to do these as well.
- Like me, if you live in an older home, you’re going to want to replace your air filter more often than what it suggests on the package, especially if you have pets.
- Consider having your air ducts cleaned.
- Don’t forget to get your chimney cleaned out.
