Step 3: Clear the Air
When the fastidious folks at NASA studied home air quality, they found that it was 5 times worse than the air outside, which is why the air in your home is your final allergy-proofing frontier.
Purchase an air purifier with a HEPA filter.
For a cheaper alternative, fill your home with air-filtering plants. Plants such as fichus, snake plants and gerbera daisies can clean your air by removing carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and other indoor air pollutants. Ask your local plant store for other suggestions.
Change the filters in your heating and air conditioning systems and units 4 times per year.
There, you're done. Wasn't that easy? Take a deep breath. Don't you feel better?
