Healthy Home; Healthy You
In present times, it’s essential to focus on holistic well-being to improve your overall health and immunity. But did you know that the air inside your home can get pollutants, too?
Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to spend hours scrubbing your walls and floors daily, but you can make some simple changes to create a healthier environment inside your home.
1. Consider Using an Air Purifier
An air purifier can help you fight pollutants inside your home. However, a single air purifier isn’t likely to work for your entire home. Most air purifiers are created for specific areas, and it’s crucial to pick one that’s going to work in your space.
2. Add Some Greenery to Your Décor
Create a healthy home with the right kind of green. Adding plants to your room is a relatively inexpensive way of adding colour and positivity to your room. Certain plant varieties like sansevierias and philodendrons are also known to act as natural air purifiers. Do some research and pick up a few easy-to-maintain plants from a local nursery to instantly boost your home’s mood and health.
3. Use an Antimicrobial Coating For Your Walls and Furniture
The Royale Health Shield Luxury Emulsion is part of a new range of home paints by Asian Paints proven to kill 99%# of bacteria with the silver ion technology recommended* by the Indian Medical Association.
The healthy paint improves indoor air quality by reducing formaldehyde while giving your walls the best-in-class luxury finish and long-lasting protection from germs. Besides your walls, you can create an anti-bacterial coating on multiple surfaces using Royal Health Shield Clear to keep your home healthy and safe.
4. Use a Vacuum with HEPA Filters
Sweeping and mopping your interiors isn’t going to eliminate the small particles and dust in your home. Consider purchasing a vacuum cleaner with a well-designed HEPA filter to minimise dust, mites, pollen, and pet dander in your home.
A regular vacuum cleaner might make your home look clean, but a product with a HEPA filter will remove these particles to make the air inside your home breathable.
5. Choose Toxin-Free Products
We use a wide array of products to clean our homes. But are they doing more damage than good? Many home paints and cleaners contain VOCs or volatile organic compounds released as gases and can potentially pollute your home.
When you paint your house, VOCs are released both during application and drying. Your household cleaners with VOCs also release harmful fumes that can lead to severe respiratory problems.
Therefore, it’s vital to purchase toxin-free products to clean and maintain your home. A little bit of research can go a long way in protecting your health as well as the environment.
