3 Natural Ways to Purify Air at Home10:17:00 AM
Most people don’t know this, but the air you breathe inside the house is often times more polluted than the air outside. This may sound unreal given that we now live in a highly polluted world.
However, you need to realize that there are lots of stuff in your house that pollute the air, and there is a lower capacity for air to circulate and neutralize itself indoors. For instance, your bathroom might be a good breeding ground for bacteria that can cause air pollution. Pet dander too, from your beloved pet, can be a major source of pollutants that can lead to long-term complications.
So are things you use every day, such as nail polish and gel. Now that you have an idea of how polluted the air inside your house is, you are probably wondering, is there a way to clean it up without an air purifier? Well, the answer is yes. It is possible to naturally purify the air inside your home. Here are 3 natural ways to do this, and enjoy clean air, for a longer and healthier life.
1. Make use of salt lamps
The Himalayan salt lamp is one of the best ways to naturally purify the air in your house. It works by sucking in moist air from the environment then neutralizing it of toxins. The salt lamp is quite popular as a natural means of purifying air because it can be used in any indoor locations.
That’s because it is odorless, and has a low light orange glow. This makes it perfect for use in offices, and even in the bedroom as you dream away. Salt lamps also work when off, which adds to their overall appeal as a tool for purifying indoor air, for a better quality of life.
2. Make use of indoor plants
Plants are among the best ways to purify the air in your house, by sucking in contaminated air and releasing oxygen that is fit for breathing. To make the most of plants as air purifiers, go for those that can thrive in low light environments so that they don’t wither away quickly.
A plant like Areca palm can thrive under an indirect light, which makes it perfect for purifying the air in deem rooms. For rooms that have more light such as the living room, you can purify the air using plants that require direct sunlight such as the lady's palm.
3. Keep your house ventilated
This sounds like a no-brainer, but it doesn’t really allude to leaving your windows open all the times. Doing this can actually be counterproductive, especially if you live in a highly polluted environment. What ventilation means in this context is that you should install air vents in your house.
These vents are designed to cycle air in and out of the house, thereby keeping the air inside fresh and clean at all times. The best thing about air vents is that they are a one-off investment. Once you install them, you don’t have to worry about replacements any time in the near future, unless you are renovating the entire house.
