Did you know that the indoor environment of your home has an impact on your health? In fact; the degree of air pollution is two to five times higher indoors than out. Here are some tips to improve the indoor air quality (IAQ); of your home by drastically cutting down on pollutants.

Ways to Improve the Air Quality in Your Home

1. Create regular air currents

Create an air current for 10 minutes twice a day. Ventilate spaces to renew the air in your home; especially when running the dishwasher and after a bath or shower; when humidity can set in. To make things easier, you can install a whole-house ventilation system; a device that continuously renews the air in your home. This way every room will be permanently ventilated year round.

2. Insulate cold surfaces

To reduce condensation on your windows and walls, you can install a foam sheath around pipes; choose energy-efficient windowpanes and opt for insulating materials. This will minimize the risk of humidity and improve the air quality of your home.

3. Choose VOC-free materials

Extremely toxic for air quality and thus for your health, VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are emitted primarily by cleaning products and construction materials. Most VOCs are carcinogenic, which is why it’s imperative you avoid them. To do so, choose hygienic eco-smart materials. Mercier Flooring has developed the Greenguard-certified Mercier Generations finish from 100% pure soy oil. These products are certified only after undergoing a rigorous third-party evaluation of their ingredients.
