Are Your Cleaning Habits Harming Your Indoor Air Quality?

Are Your Cleaning Habits Harming Your Indoor Air Quality?

The main goal when you tidy up your house is to make sure everything is dust-free and sparklingly clean. But what if we told you that, in your efforts to get your house tidy, some of your methods could actually be harming your indoor air quality? These are just a few bad habits that could be having a negative effect on your home’s air.

Using Store-Bought Cleaning Products

Store bought cleaning products are filled with fragrances and chemicals that can not only harm your indoor air quality but also have a negative effect on your health. Skip the store-bought products and opted for natural or DIY cleaning products to use around your home instead.

Using the Wrong Tools

When you go to wipe the dust off a shelf or your coffee table, what tool are you using? If you’re using a dry cloth or a feather duster, all you’re doing is pushing that dust into your air for you and your family to breathe in. Always use a damp or microfiber cloth that will actually trap dust and other particles so they are fully removed from your home.

Using Air Fresheners

We know you want your home to smell like a Hawaiian breeze or fresh linen, but have you considered what’s in your favorite air freshener? Especially aerosol ones, they’re likely filled with harsh chemicals and allergy-inducing ingredients. Instead of using air fresheners, opt for naturally scented soy candles.
