We spend much of our time indoors. Indoor air quality also impacts on our exposure to pollutants.
Here are just some of sources of air pollution in your home:
Good ventilation will help to avoid air pollution in your home. It will also help stop the build up of moulds too.
Keep dust levels low, by using fragrance-free or naturally-scented products, switch to mild cleaning products and avoid aerosols.
Carbon Monoxide from faulty boilers and heaters can be fatal so make sure you get your boiler serviced regularly.
If you're thinking of replacing your boiler consider installing an ultra-low Nox model.
Wood-burning stoves have grown in popularity. Domestic burning contributes 38% of particulate matter pollution, compared with 16% from industrial combustion and only 12% from road transport. If you’re installing a new wood burning stove, buy a Defra-approved stove, only burn dry wood and only light it when really needed.
