At least as long as you stay indoors, then you are protected from pollution. We are telling you 10 changes made at home to reduce indoor pollution, which will keep your whole family safe and sound.
Plant these special plants at home
If you want to avoid pollution, then put some special plants in small pots in your house, which are known to purify the air. These plants not only enhance the beauty of your home but also protect your family from pollution. Among these plants are aloe vera, basil, mani plant, golden pothos, Boston fern, Christmas cactus, Ashoka tree, hawthorn, bamboo palm plant, etc., which are known to release a good amount of oxygen. So plant such plants in your bedroom and kitchen.
Do not smoke indoors
By the way, smoking means that it is harmful to your health, so smoking should not be done. But if you are used to it, at least never smoke inside the house. This worsens the internal air and the effect of passive smoking on other members of your household is also very bad.
Use room freshener very rarely
Although the freshener is attached to the name of room fresheners, they are not good for your lungs. Especially if there is a small child in the house, you should not use room fresheners, as it can be very dangerous for them. Do not exceed 2-3 sprays if necessary and see that no person comes directly in front of the room freshener’s gas.
Keep window doors closed but arrange ventilation
The level of pollution outside the home is usually 2-3 times more pollution than inside the house. The reason for this is that people inside the house breathe continuously and release carbon dioxide and pollution occurs while cooking in the kitchen. Therefore, to avoid contamination from outside, you should keep the windows and doors of your house closed. But ventilation should be maintained. If there is no ventilation, it is better to open the windows.
