10 Tips for Cleaner Indoor Air

Breathe easy in a healthier home.

| July/August 2006

1. No smoking. Secondhand smoke can be deadly even to nonsmokers. Declare your home a smoke-free zone.

2. Ventilate. Let in fresh, outdoor air through vents and open windows. Leave doors open between rooms for better air circulation.

3. Dry the air. Keep humidity levels low with a dehumidifier or air conditioner.

4. Shop for low VOCs. When remodeling, opt for low-VOC floorcoverings and paints.

5. Test for radon. Test your home and hire a professional for mitigation if necessary.

6. Clean regularly. Scrub floors and wash fabrics to keep dust mites and other allergens to a minimum.
