4 Ways You are Diminishing your Indoor Air Quality
What's one of the most unseen features in a home? The air quality. Of course, since this feature is “hidden” in appearance, it’s rather simple to diminish it on a daily basis. If you’re looking for a way to improve your indoor air quality, then here are some actions to avoid:
1. Wearing Your Shoes Indoors
One of the most significant ways you’re contributing to poor indoor air quality is by wearing your shoes around the house. Granted, it might not seem like a big deal, but it is — and why is that? Simple: when you’re walking around outside, think about the germs that are latching onto your footwear.
Of course, once you begin to walk around those germs then go airborne, which diminishes your air quality. The best way to prevent this from happening is (you guessed it) to take your shoes off by the front door. Not only will this keep your floors clean, but it will keep those pesky airborne germs on the ground!
2. Spraying Chemical Cleaners
Another surefire way to diminish your home’s air quality? Using an array of chemical cleaners. From scrubbing your bathroom floors to washing the windows, there’s a spray that can help make each of these surfaces sparkle and shine — but it’s doing more harm than good.
Think about it: when you’re spraying those cleaners, the particles from the cleaning solution go airborne and hinder your air quality.
If you want to keep your home spotless without diminishing your indoor air quality, then it’s best to opt for a green cleaner. Coming in a variety of styles and solutions, these eco-friendly cleaning solutions don’t have chemical additives and get the job done without causing airborne harm!
3. Burning Scented Candles
Do you happen to light candles in your home on a weekly basis? If that’s the case, then we have some bad news for you: they’re contaminating the air. Just like chemical cleaners, candles spread a series of airborne chemicals. And since these toxins are started with heat, it makes matters even worse.
Indeed, if you want to burn candles in your home, then it’s best to invest in either beeswax or soy-based candles. Not only do these specific candles still emit the same great scents, but they won’t release any harmful toxins into the air.
4. Using Aerosol Cans
The age-old rumor is true: using aerosol cans, of any type, is detrimental to the air quality in your home and the overall environment. The reason being is this: when an aerosol spray is manufactured, creators take a series of harmful, compressed gasses which diminish air quality when they’re sprayed. Additionally, they also deplete the ozone layer in the process.
The best way to avoid this blunder is to use a pump spray bottle. Not only does this eliminate the use of compressed gasses, but it also helps lessen your overall carbon footprint.
