Being so close to Boston has its benefits, but it also makes escaping from city pollution nearly impossible. Contaminated indoor air can affect your family’s health, causing symptoms like respiratory infections, headaches, and more. Fortunately, Genove is here to reverse the effects of polluted air.

Symptoms of Unclean Air

If the air in your home is contaminated, you may notice yourself or your family suffering from the following afflictions. If two or more people have the same symptom, it’s a dead giveaway of bad air:

  • Eye irritation
  • Cough or sore throat
  • Respiratory infections
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Dry skin or rash
  • Allergic reactions

Improve Your Home’s Air Quality

There are several steps we can take to ensure that the air inside our homes stays safe and healthy for our family members. Use these suggestions to reduce the amount of airborne particles that contaminate your home, and start enjoying cleaner air right away:

Put Thick Rugs at Each Door Leading Inside

Chemicals and pollutants can be tracked in on shoes, paws, rolling bags, and more. Placing an absorbent mat by each door will reduce the amount of bacteria that is brought in on foot—just remind family and guests to leave their shoes at the door.

Contact Genove for an Annual HVAC Tune-Up

When air filters clog up with dust, pollen, and other particles, your furnace, boiler, or A/C won’t work as well. Beyond that, it won’t filter as much air, leaving particles to float around your living space. Now is the perfect time to book your 2019 maintenance: spots will fill up soon.

Burn Beeswax Candles or Salt Lamps

These natural purifiers will clean your air while adding a nice ambiance to the environment. Beeswax candles help to reduce dust and they never release benzene, toluene, or soot like paraffin candles do. Salt lamps, according to Dr. Ahuja at Fortis Hospital, attract and neutralize pathogens. The bonus is that candles and lamps look great as home décor.
