During winter everyone tend to spend more time indoor because the fireplace or heater is on. One problem with keeping the house closed during the cold weather is bad air circulation. Believe it or not there are more germs indoor than outdoor. EPA estimates that indoor pollution level are 2 to 5 times – and occasionally more than 100 times – higher than outdoors. Think about all those heat and dust building up.
Here's what you need to do to detox the air.
1. Open windows to circulate the air.
Getting the air moving, especially if your windows are open, is a great way to remove indoor toxins.
2. Get an Air Filter
HEPA filters do an awesome job of removing dust, pollen, pet dander. A good filter can capture 99% of airborne allergens. It’s definitely an investment if buying for everyone’s bedrooms, but you can also vacuum weekly with a HEPA filter to eliminate fine dust particles.
3. Grow a house plant.
This is the most natural air purifier you have in your home. Try a pothos plant, a palm or an aloe plant to freshen up your bedroom.
