Are you spending most of your time at home? Do you keep the windows of your house closed? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it is important to maintain healthy indoor air quality.
When it comes to indoor air pollution, there are often several factors that might often go unnoticed. While outdoor pollution can be easily sensed in the form of smoke or heavy odors, indoor pollution hides behind pleasant scents from air fresheners and the possible presence of mold and dust mites.
Considering the amount of time we spend indoors, the quality of the air we breathe can have a big impact on our health, comfort, and overall productivity. Fortunately, we can create awareness and take some steps to improve indoor air quality.
Here are five things we can do to help improve the indoor air quality at home.
1. Keep Your Home Tidy and Clean
Keep your desk dust-free. Vacuum and/or mop floors to keep them fresh. Place a floor mat at the entrance of every door to reduce the amount of dirt from getting into your home.
To make your home clean and beautiful, use SunBright® SuperClean™ Household Cleaner to remove even the most stubborn dirt, grime, and soap scum.
2. Regulate Humidity Levels
Using a dehumidifier (and air conditioner during summer months) can help reduce moisture and allergens, which could prevent the formation of mold and limit the presence of dust mites.
3. Stay Away from Synthetic Fragrances
Some air fresheners contain harmful chemicals that may contribute to indoor air pollution. As these chemicals are commonly listed as “fragrance” on labels, many of us aren’t aware of the potential health risk associated with using air fresheners.
Alternatively, use SunBreeze® Oil to bring a safe, pleasant scent to your home. Just add a few drops of SunBreeze® Oil into a diffuser, and the air in your home will become fresher. Here is our recommended proportion of SunBreeze® Oil and water:
• Add 3 to 5 drops in 100 ml of water
• Add 9 to 12 drops in 300 ml of water
• Add 15 to 20 drops in 500 ml of water
4. Create a Smoke-Free Environment
Cigarette smoke contains more than 4,000 harmful chemicals, and there are numerous studies proving that smoking and second-hand smoke are detrimental to health. If you are a smoker, consider smoking outside of your home to avoid exposing your family to second-hand smoke and enhance the indoor air quality at home.

5. Place Indoor Plants in Your Home
The foliage and roots of houseplants such as Peace Lily, Aloe Vera, English Ivy, Chrysanthemum, or a snake plant can be used to reduce the presence of toxic chemicals, cleanse the air, and absorb certain pollutants.
