5 Easy Tips to Green the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) of your Home, School & Business

1. Use “green” cleaning products and techniques to reduce harmful effects of unhealthy chemical exposure.

2. Properly maintain your HVAC system to ensure good indoor air quality.

3. When painting, replacing carpeting or furniture, use products with low VOC emissions.

4. Use task lighting in work areas to decrease energy use and increase human comfort.

5. Provide opportunities for your family and/or employees to have indoor plants that create healthy air quality in their personal breathing space. The peace lily is my top pick – it filters toxins from the air very effectively, and most important, is almost impossible to kill even if you have a brown thumb.

  1. Yes there are some basic things you can do that can turn into a modest piece of an indoor air quality solution,for example,basically storing any paints or solvents outside or in any event in an airtight container on the off chance that you can't move them outside,to a garage, and so forth.
