Eco-Friendly Fixes for Indoor Air

January 7, 2019

If you’re feeling a little sluggish, it might not be all of those holiday cookies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency reports that fatigue, itchy throats, headache, and dizziness are immediate symptoms of poor indoor air quality (IAQ).

Check your home for signs of poor IAQ. If you find some, don’t worry. There are simple fixes that will help you and the environment. We’ve compiled our best tips just for you.

Ditch the Aerosols

Although aerosols are an everyday item for many of us, they are a contributor to poor IAQ. If you’re not ready to toss them, try limiting their effect on your home. Only use your aerosols by an open window. If the area isn’t by a window, open a one nearby for an hour after use.

Keep Shoes by the Door

It’s not just good manners! Have you ever seen the bottom of your shoes? Bookmark this page and go take a look. We’ll wait.

Pretty gross, right? We pick up a lot of dirt, pollen, and chemicals throughout the day that don’t belong in the home. Remove your shoes as soon as you step inside to keep uninvited guests at bay.

Become a Plant Parent

It’s time to join the succulent trend. Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, succulents are full of health benefits. One Green Planet found the best plants for IAQ. Which plant earned the top spot? English Ivy. Studies have shown that English Ivy works to remove benzene, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, mold, and airborne fecal matter.
