Fall is the BEST, right? We’re so excited for sweaters and bonfires that we don’t even mind spending less time outside.
Before you start spending all your time inside, remember that indoor air can be filled with just as much—and sometimes even more—dust, dirt, allergens, and pollution than the great outdoors.
Here’s how to make sure you’re keeping the air in your house as fresh as possible.
Change your air filters.
Here we go again, telling you to change your air filters! It really does make a huge difference.
Keeping your filters fresh helps you save on energy bills and is the first step to making sure you’re filtering air pollution from blowing through your house.
Keep your pets clean.
We become so accustomed to our furry friends that we forget how unclean they can be! Think about it—they’re running around outside, romping with other dogs, and rolling around in ragweed-covered grass, then they’re coming right inside and jumping on your couch!
Not only is your pet probably spreading germs, but they’re also creating hotspots for the distribution of air pollution.
The best way to mitigate this is to keep them groomed, brushed, and clean! We wrote a whole blog on this topic. Check it out here.
Do seasonal deep cleans.
Don’t just spring clean…Fall clean! Winter clean! Summer clean!
Because tackling those out-of-sight dust and dirt traps more often keeps them from building up and creates a fresh environment for your family. Even beyond regular house cleaning, you should also be sure that you’re taking care of the bigger problem areas around your home—like the water sources around your house, the leaves building up in your gutters, and even your large appliances.
Invest in some plants!
Have you heard of air purifying plants?
They’re great because not only do they naturally clean the air in your house, but they’re usually some of the easiest plants to take care of. And even better? They’re super stylish!
