There are many ways to enhance the air quality in your home. Aside from remembering to dust, if you are sensitive to allergens and pollen, really cleaning and purifying the air is something you need to do. If you want to breathe better throughout the day, here are some natural purifying techniques you can use to improve your life at home.

 

Open the Windows

Fresh, clean air dilutes the pollution that’s found in various spaces. To achieve the best results, leave the windows open for about 15 minutes each day, during times when the air is relatively dry. If the pollen count is high, you should keep your windows closed to avoid allergies. Letting moist air into your house means potential mold risks in certain areas will increase, so be aware of when you decide to let fresh air in.



Vacuum in multiple passes

In order to get clearer air throughout your entire home, you must get rid of dust. By vacuuming dirty areas more than once, you’ll capture more dust and boost the overall air quality. To prevent fraying on area rugs, work from the center outward. Take your time and be sure to empty it as you go, so the suction will work best.
