5 Ways to Make Your Indoors Pollution-Free


The air pollution in our beloved city has been horrendous this whole week. The toxic air definitely affects our health and we should all have a safe place to come, where the air is clean. The best way to do so is by making the indoor air of your home clean and pollution free. With extensive pollution outside, chances are that the pollution inside is even worse-which can really impact the physical and mental health. To make your home pollution free, check out the tips below:

Ventilation: Ventilation in homes reduces the moisture levels. The best way to allow for ventilation without opening the windows is to install vents that cycle and purify the air. Another form of ventilation is the exhaust fans which help carry the pollution form inside to the outside. One of the most common areas where ventilation becomes an issue is in the kitchen: due to extensive cooking. The best way to avoid indoor pollution is to ensure the chimney fan is on.
