Did you know that indoor air is often less clean than outdoor air? It's true. So, you should be mindful of keeping your indoor air as clean as possible. It will take some effort to clear the air, quite literally, but it is definitely doable. Here are some steps you can take to make your air cleaner!
Use air purifiers
If your indoor air is not the cleanest, then an air purifier should definitely be an appliance you get. There are all sorts of models and features available, so choose one that is in your price range and has an excellent rating for its effectiveness. If you have a large apartment or many rooms, you might need more than one air purifier.
Install high-quality air filters
Spend a little extra money on air filters to install in your heating and cooling system. Rather than using the ultra-cheap ones, higher-quality ones will filter out a variety of substances and particles. That includes mold spores, pet dander, viruses and dust.
No matter how hot or cold it is outside, open your windows for even just 5 or 10 minutes per day. You will be airing out your apartment and bringing fresh air in. That is much better than keeping all windows closed and breathing stagnant air.
Vacuum and dust
Keeping your apartment clean helps to keep the air quality up, so vacuum and dust at least weekly. You might need to complete those tasks more often than that under certain circumstances, such as if you have a pet that is shedding.
It does not take much effort to keep your indoor air fresh and clean, yet the effort is so worthwhile when you notice the drastic improvement in your air quality.
