Love Is in The Air: Top 6 Indoor Air Quality Tips For Valentine’s Day

Love should be the only thing in the air this Valentine’s Day. If harmful pollutants are causing you and your Valentine to feel sick (and no, we don’t mean lovesick), then it’s time to take action. Here are the top 6 indoor air quality tips for a happy and healthy Valentine’s Day.

1. Use Exhaust Fans

Are you cooking up a romantic dinner for that special someone? Don’t forget to use your exhaust fans while cooking! The fan is designed to remove airborne cooking byproducts from the air in your kitchen. These byproducts may include grease, fumes, smoke, heat, and steam. These byproducts can contribute to poor indoor air quality, but using your exhaust fans will help remove pollutants and moisture from your air. 

2. Keep Your Home Clean

Planning on staying in this Valentine’s Day? As you plan a nice, romantic evening, make sure to clean your carpets and rugs and dust off your vents. These things can contribute to poor indoor air quality. In fact, you should plan to vacuum at least twice a week with a vacuum that comes equipped with a HEPA filter. You should also consider asking people to take off their shoes before entering the home, as you can track in pollutants that way as well.

3. Open The Windows

Open the windows and look up at the stars with your loved one this Valentine’s Day. Opening windows, even for a short time, can help clear pollutants from your home and allow the fresh air to move in. 

4. Avoid Indoor Plants

Valentine’s Day is the number one holiday for florists and for floral purchases. In fact, more than 250 million roses are produced for this holiday. As much as you may want to celebrate this special occasion by getting some plants for that special person in your life, they can actually contribute to poor indoor air quality, such as indoor pollution and allergies.

5. Change your Air Filters

You should change your air filters regularly, at least every 30-90 days. Dirty air filters not only cause your HVAC system to work harder to push air through, but they also contribute to poor indoor air quality. When your air filters are clean and free of pollutants, you can enjoy better air circulation and fresher, cleaner air.

6. Invest In Indoor Air Quality Solutions

Maintaining clean air quality is an important part of preventing aggravated asthma, allergies and contagious illness. There’s nothing like being sick to ruin a romantic evening.
