Green Cleaning at Home: Open Up the Windows

By the time we hit March, winter has usually worn out its welcome, and we all look forward to the first glimpses of spring. Maybe the first step to help usher in that spring-time freshness is to simply open your windows. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the dirty truth is that the air quality inside your home can be more harmful than the air outside. The winter buildup of pet dander, mold spores, chemicals, and pollen – yes, even pollen finds its way indoors – can lead to an unhealthy indoor atmosphere. These factors can make life uncomfortable if you suffer from allergies and asthma. Opening your windows will create an airflow that will help push those pollutants outside.

Pro-Tip: You don’t have to wait until the temps reach the upper 60’s. Try opening your windows – even for 30-minute stretches – when the sun is bright and it’s warm enough to melt the snow. A breath of fresh air will do wonders for your health and your outlook during those late winter doldrums.
