Five Top Tips to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Air pollution is making the news due to the effects it has on human health. Over 480,000 premature deaths a year are due to air pollution in Europe with 49,000 coming from the UK. Did you know that the air in the UK is so polluted UK has the highest rate of asthma in Europe and is currently failing to meet air quality targets to reduce its carbon emissions by 20% by the year 2020?

This problem isn't limited to busy cities, as although new British homes are incredibly well built and provide excellent insulation, they are virtually airtight. This airtightness has led to indoor air being up to 50% more polluted than outdoor air.

The following tips can help you combat the issues of indoor air pollution and improve the indoor air quality in your home:

  1. Take your shoes off at the door. Believe it or not, this simple act prevents dirt and dust amongst other things being trailed around the house. General living means that the dirt can easily turn into airborne pollutants which can exacerbate allergies and even cause respiratory problems.

  2. Using wood flooring where possible. Wood floors are easier to clean than carpets and, unlike carpets, don’t trap dirt and hair which can trigger allergies and cause respiratory problems.

  3. Minimise drying your washing indoors. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are found in detergents and can irritate the lungs. By drying clothes outdoors, were possible, it provides the opportunity for the VOCs to dissipate and reduce their impact on your health.

  4. Minimise condensation in your bathroom or kitchen. Everyone likes a steamy bath or a hot shower, however this causes a lot of excess moisture to develop in the room. If this moisture isn’t controlled and swiftly removed from the room, it can lead to mould developing in the area. This will affect your health as the spores can trigger allergies and will also affect the health of the property.

  5. Ventilate effectively. There is a wide range of options available to you which ensure that excess moisture and pollutants are swiftly removed from your property (and in some cases prevented from entering). By ensuring your wet rooms (kitchens, bathrooms and toilets etc.) are properly ventilated, you ensure that excess moisture isn’t given the opportunity to develop into mould and damp which can negatively impact both the health of the fabric of the building and the health of you and your family.
