4 Ways To Improve Your Apartment’s Air Quality


If I’ve learned anything in my life, it is that I wouldn’t have a life if it weren’t for air. We need to breathe to live. And if we breathe in toxins, we are likely to get sick – or worse. It is such a simple part of life, but it’s one that could easily be taken for granted. After all, people breathe without even noticing it. That is why it is important to have good apartment air quality, because it can go unnoticed but have a huge effect. There are a few ways to accomplish this:


Keep it Clean

This seems simple, and it could mean many things. If something is messy, organize it. If something is too old and moldy, throw it out. Use disinfectant wipes every now and then. You should vacuum up dust and dirt, as things like that definitely affect air quality. A clean home is a livable home.

Have Plants

Plants produce oxygen and filter out carbon dioxide, and they make your apartment fresher. Depending on what kind of plant, they can even make it smell fresher, too. The only thing to keep in mind is that if the plants are overwatered, there is a chance that the excess moisture will produce mold.

Control Airflow

Having on a fan, or an air filter, or letting the breeze in is an important part of keeping your apartment’s air quality high. It makes sure the air isn’t stagnant, and it filters out the old or dusty air particles. This one is relatively easy to do.

Be Aware of What You Bring In

You should know that if you do something like smoke cigarettes inside your apartment, it does not bode well for the air quality of your apartment. And the same thing for anything that produces toxins. They can be dealt with, but are something to keep in mind. They definitely don’t make your apartment smell like fresh flowers though – that’s for sure.
