Reduce the Risk of Indoor Air Pollution

Reduce the Risk of
Indoor Air Pollution
The more time we spend indoors, the more
mindful we should be about the quality of
the air in the enclosed environments we
share. Controlling and improving indoor air
quality can be a major factor in reducing
the risk of exposure to airborne pollutants
such as allergens and other causes of
respiratory illness. Here are four effective
steps you can take:
Remove damp carpeting, toxic solvents,
paints, oily rags and cleaning products
that may accumulate in the house. Seal up
exposed insulation and clean up mould.
Ensure your home is well ventilated by
using proper exhaust fans when cooking,
bathing, showering, or operating any fuelburning
unit. (Note that some furnaces
have built-in venting.)
Regularly dust hard surfaces, vacuum
upholstery and beat/shake out rugs
and drapery.
Take steps to clean your air through
portable units and/or whole-home
HEPA filtration/circulation, and be sure
to change/clean them according to the
manufacturer’s instructions.
