Improve your Home’s Indoor Air Quality

According to,”indoor allergens and pollutants hit their peak in the winter, when homes are sealed against the cold.” The home/design site lists 11 ways to improve your home’s air quality, and here are a few that are worth highlighting:

* Add houseplants to help fight air pollution (they’ll also lend your home a sense of natural beauty).

* Regularly check and replace the filters in your heating/cooling system to minimize contaminants in the air.

* Frequently launder drapery, fabric shower curtains, and bedding in water as hot as is allowed (preferably above 130 ºF)

* Always ensure proper ventilation in damp areas, such as bathrooms. This helps prevent mold, dust mites, and — yikes! — cockroaches.
