Act now to breathe easy later

Monday, December 11, 2017

October is National Indoor Air Quality Month. It’s a great way to raise awareness, because even though we spend 80 percent of our time in indoor environments, most people don’t stop to think about the quality of the air we’re breathing when inside.

The average home can contain a wide range of pollutants, such as carbon monoxide, radon, mildew, molds, lead and secondhand smoke. Homeowners should ensure adequate ventilation as well as install carbon monoxide detectors and consider having radon testing done.

There are a number of simple ways to mitigate the harmful effects of indoor pollution. Consider moving VOCs such as gasoline, kerosene and paint stripper to an outdoor shed. Keeping houseplants can also help, since plants can help “clean” the air when they process carbon dioxide.
