Improve Your Indoor Air Quality in the Fall

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

As the cold weather moves in, we’ll spend more time indoors, so this a great time to improve the quality of your indoor air. Here are a few tips to utilize in your quest for cleaner air:

  • Properly ventilate your attic and crawl spaces to prevent moisture build–up
  • If you use cool mist or ultrasonic humidifiers, clean them according to the manufacturer’s instructions and refill them daily with fresh water. Some homeowners use vinegar to clean their filters. To learn more about this method click here.
  • Carefully seal paints, solvents, pesticides and chemicals of any kind in your home. Keep quantities to a minimum and, whenever possible, keep these items stored in your garage or shed.
