The age of your home could have a direct impact on the quality of the indoor air. Condensation on the windows, the buckling of wallpaper, and black stains on the walls could indicate a moisture and mold problem.
It’s often easy to improve the air quality in your home by making a few changes.
One of the main sources of indoor pollution is smoke; avoid smoking inside your home.
Regularly verify and maintain combustion appliances. Check your dryer’s vent hose: if it’s broken or cracked, the unhealthy air within will seep out into your home instead of blowing outside.
Cleaning your home regularly with mild detergents allows you to keep the house clean and dust-free. Use unscented cleaning products and if you must use bleach, mix it with equal parts water.
Air out your home as often as possible regardless of the season, but avoid doing so during peak hours or when there are construction projects going on in your area.
