Polluted air in the home can lead to a number of problems and is one of the worst forms of pollution that an individual can be subjected to.
Dust mites, molds, smoke particles, and pollens that sit in the air at home can cause serious damage to the respiratory system in both you and your children so it is not something that should be taken lightly yet many individuals do not think twice about the air in their homes.
We hear often about air pollution outside and activists are set on reducing outdoor air pollution but this hardly matters if we do not keep the air in our homes clean. It may seem like a difficult task due to the fact that you cannot see the pollution in the home but it is there, it is dangerous, and it can be taken care of quite easily.
Doing a few things differently when it comes to your home and purchasing an inexpensive tool to help keep the air clean can make all the difference in the air that you and your family are breathing in.
The first thing that you want to do is make sure that you are keeping up on the dusting in your home. It is best to wear a surgical type mask when you do this so that you are not directly breathing in the dust as you are cleaning it. The best thing to use is an oil based duster that will allow the dust to cling to the cloth rather than floating right back into the air when you wipe it up. Many homes get dusty quickly and could use a good dusting once a week. This may seem like a lot but it is a small price to pay for your family being healthier.
Another thing that really helps keep dust and air pollutants at bay is keeping your rugs vacuumed and your floors swept and mopped. Floors that have a lot of dust and pollutants on them release those particles back into the air every time you or somebody in your family walks on them. You should make a serious attempt to sweep, mop, and vacuum a couple of times a week. If you feel like it is to much to keep up on yourself then enlist the help of another family member, after all it is their health as well that is at stake.
One of the best tools for keeping the air clean though is investing in an air purifier and when I say invest I mean it is truly an investment because without one is can cost you and your family their health. There are numerous different air purifiers out there from very low cost to more expensive. You should base your choice on the size of your home, whether or not there are smokers in the home, and on how fast your home tends to collect dust.
Keeping dust and pollutants at bay means keeping you and your family healthy. Invest in the health of your family and clean your air today.
