How to Naturally Purify Home Air

Most of us spend a good majority of our time in the comfort our home. Therefore, we expect to breathe healthy and clean air in our home. With a few adjustments in the way we use our home, clean indoor air can be where you need it most. Here are some tips to naturally purify home air.

Ventilate for Cleaner Air

The air inside of our homes can be far more polluted than anything outside. In any given house, there are hundreds of different types of pollutants and contaminants. Keeping windows and doors closed traps polluted air, allowing them to fester and gather more dirt.

If you want to ventilate, but are wary of outside air, try installing trickle vents at windows and doors. Trickle vents are small openings that allow natural ventilation and air filtering.

Especially during the winter months, it’s critical you ensure that all gas stoves and fireplaces have proper ventilation in place to avoid bad air.

Choose What You Have in Your Home Carefully

From paint on the walls to dish soap and wood cleaning formula, every chemical compound has the potential to adversely affect your indoor air quality. Using eco-friendly or health-conscious cleaning supplies contributes to a safer indoor environment when it comes to the air you breathe.

Natural methods of cleaning your home air include salt lamps and beeswax candles, which work to deodorize and disarm harmful toxins in the air.

Plants also help purify your air. Snake plants and spider plants are low maintenance options that can clean air of formaldehyde and carbon monoxide. As a bonus, they release fresh oxygen at night.

Keep Up with Home Maintenance

Regular maintenance is essential if you want to maintain your indoor air quality.

  • Mend leaks wherever they are: the roof, bathroom sinks and toilets and kitchens. Any type of stagnant water collected is an opportunity for microbiological growth that can contaminate the air supply.
  • Keep floors clean or pet air, dirt and other particles.
  • Eliminate sources of air toxins such as cigarette smoke and lead-based paints.

Care for the Central Air System

To truly boost your indoor air quality, the first place you should start is your central air system. Because your furnace and air conditioner affect any and all your indoor air, it can be used to treat and clean your air as it cools and heats your home.

One of the best ways to help purify your air is by regularly changing the air filter. By regularly changing your air filter, you’re ensuring your air system is efficient. When you care for your central air system, almost no additional care is needed apart from regular AC and heater maintenance.
