    How to Make Your Family’s Home Healthier

    Your family home should be a safe haven, but there are hidden dangers that undermine the health and safety of your household. Here are some simple ways you can protect yourself and your loved ones.

    Clear the Air

    No one wants to breathe dusty air, especially if you suffer from allergies or asthma. Household dust comprises dirt, pollen, insect waste, and other home pollutants, including pet fur and human skin. In a recent study reported by the Washington Post, researchers also found traces of toxic chemicals from furniture and cleaning products in the everyday dust. All these are of great concern to asthma and allergy sufferers.

    To improve your home’s air quality, vacuum regularly — at least twice per week. Ideally, use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter to be sure to trap all that pollen, pet dander, and dirt. Also, make sure you change your HVAC filters at least once a month, since these traps many of the most common air pollutants. You might also consider installing UV lamps, which help destroy viruses, bacteria, and spores.
