We are used to hearing that the air in London and big cities, in general, is full of heavy metals and other pollutants that literally poison the air not only outside but also in our homes. Many people suffer from allergies and asthma and look for solution how to improve the air quality at home. They run to buy moisturizers, ionizers, air washes, install fresh air ventilation and filters. Do not wait for a special occasion, start cleaning the air right now! We really can clean the air in our homes if we just follow some easy but effective tips, like regular carpet cleaning, regular airing of the room, installing ventilation valves and freeing your home from unnecessary items that collect dust.

Use Professional Carpet Cleaning Services At Least Twice a Year

In order to keep your home dust-free, you have to use professional carpet cleaning services once or twice a year. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, if you have pets or small children, the deep carpet cleaning services need to be performed 3-4 times a year. It is very important to look for a provider of carpet cleaning services that use only eco cleaning products. Those professional “green” preparations achieve the same spectacular effect like chemical products but in a safe way! Prolux Cleaning is the most highly trusted and recommended provider of eco-friendly carpet cleaning procedures, that serves all the areas in London. 

Air the Room More Often

There is an idea that the air is dirty exactly on the street, where the factory pipes and harmful exhausts, but in the apartment, we are safe. Nothing like this! It has long been measured and counted: because of the standing air, the carbon dioxide that we produce, because of toxic finishing materials, electromagnetic radiation and other “charms”, the air in apartments is 4-6 times dirtier than on the street, and 8- 10 times more toxic. So air more often. Despite the season and bad weather.
In winter, it is better to act quickly and decisively: open all the windows in the room wide and arrange a big draft for about 10 minutes. This is enough to completely renew the air in the room and keep things cool. It would be nice to carry out such a procedure 3-4 times a day.
However, if you leave the window ajar for a long time, there will be less sense. Cool the room and the air circulation will still be insufficient.

Install Ventilation Valves

The problem of fresh air is especially acute in apartments with plastic windows. In order not to suffocate in an apartment with double-glazed windows, ventilation valves must be installed on them. This will not replace regular ventilation, but the rest of the time, it will be easier to breathe due to microcirculation of air.
Valves vary in both throughout and installation method, but are very inexpensive. There are also those that can be mounted in an existing window, without the help of invited installers - this is no more difficult than replacing a broken handle. Sometimes, the situation is saved by slotted micro-ventilation of plastic windows - the possibility of loosely closing the sash with the appearance of a slammed window. A micro-ventilator is essentially the same “slots” in wooden frames that provided natural air circulation in the old days. There is only one difference - you can remove this gap at any time by tightly closing the working sash.

Fight the Dust

A carrier of viruses, infections, a favorite medium for tick-saprophytes and a terrible allergen - it is dust that pollutes the air the most.
In a house where there are allergies, they recommend radical measures: change curtains and drapes for blinds, store books in closed cabinets, get rid of decorative textiles and plush toys. In addition, it will be quite helpful to exchange upholstered furniture for analogues in leather upholstery.
