Managing your home’s air quality is important. But the truth is, most of us don’t know what actually impacts the quality of our home’s air—or even how to properly handle the culprits if we do.
Filtrete™ Brand conducted a recent survey and uncovered some pretty startling facts about how little Americans know about things that can affect indoor air quality.
55% believe that dust settles in 30 minutes or less after cleaning. But the truth is, it can take approximately two hours for dust to settle!
Only 33% always use ventilation techniques while cooking. However, cooking smoke can create indoor air quality that is worse than that of the outdoors.
Only 34% always run the exhaust fan during a bath or shower. But to reduce mold and mildew, experts suggest keeping the exhaust running for 20 minutes after bathing.
