Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

You Can Control Sources of Air Pollution
  • Watch for water leaks, which can lead to mold or mildew
  • Don't smoke indoors or outside near doors and windows
  • Keep your environment tidy and dust free
  • Use alternative cleaning supplies instead of harsh chemicals
  • Avoid use of strong perfumes and deodorizers
  • If using an air purifier, clean filters frequently and make sure the purifier does not produce ozone
Improve Air Flow
  • Open windows and doors; most heating and cooling systems do not bring fresh air in
  • Use fans that vent air outside, especially while engaging in hobbies or activities that generate pollutants or moisture, e.g. painting, woodworking, cooking, showering.
