8 Tips For Healthier Air in Your Home

1. Don’t let your vacuum bag ever become more than half full. This will reduce the amount of particles, activated from vacuuming, to be released into the air.

2. Change your vacuum bag at least once a month.

3. Avoid dust, mold, and bacteria build-up by wiping down surfaces in bathrooms, bedrooms, and the kitchen with a diluted bleach solution.

4. Decrease the amount of surface area where dust particles can collect by eliminating as much clutter as possible.

5. Remind yourself to change your air cleaner filter by marking the date on your calendar.

6. Check your smoke alarm at the same time.

7. If you have a fireplace, get the chimney checked once a year.

8. Get an annual radon check.

Scientists at the Missouri University of Science have been trying to find out what causes asthma in children. They think it is the air pollution inside the house. This air pollution consists of, but not limited to, paints, cleaning solvents, personal care products, and also furnishings. They believe that this research will help scientists find the cause of children’s asthma or get closer to it. Read more here.

So many kids suffer from asthma and this causes them to not be able to live their childhood to the fullest because they are held back by this disease. If this helps scientists find the cause and maybe the cure, then these kids can have their life back. Hopefully they can get to the bottom of this.
