  • Fan infographic.

    Ventilate Your Kitchen

    Cooking is a big source of indoor air pollution, particularly if you have a gas stove; be sure your kitchen is well-ventilated, and open windows and doors while cooking.

  • No sign over chemicals infographic.

    Avoid High VOC Products

    Check what chemicals are in your hair/nail products, art supplies and cleaning solutions, look for products marked “low VOCs” and use only in a well-ventilated area.

  • When thinking about air quality, what comes to mind? Outdoor air pollution and smog? What you might not realize is that the air you breathe inside your home can actually be 2-5 times worse** than the air outside.

    Choosing the right filter is one simple way to help improve your home’s indoor air quality. You can’t always see unwanted airborne particles, but Filtrete™ Healthy Living Air Filters are 90% effective at capturing dust, pollen and mold spores. 

    Even well-maintained and ventilated homes can have pollen, mold spores, bacteria and viruses. Pets, cooking and everyday cleaning activities like vacuuming and dusting may also impact the air quality in your home, kicking up particles we can’t see into the air we breathe.

    But it’s hard to know how everyday activities are affecting the air around us when you can’t see it for yourself. That’s why Filtrete created Project Airhug – to provide the simplest illustration of air quality, helping you understand what’s impacting the air inside your home and providing simple tips to improve its quality.
