5 Tips to Cleanse Your Lungs

2.Pay Attention to Indoor Air Quality.

Indoor air quality also contributes to lung distress. Dust, irritants and chemicals can build up in your home. People with lung disease usually spend a lot of time indoors, and it’s important to do so on days when outdoor air quality is poor.

Here are a few suggestions to help improve indoor air quality:
Clean Up
Vacuum often and invest in a good-quality vacuum cleaner. Mop your floors, but try not to use chemical-laden cleaners.

Go Chemical-free
Use natural cleaning products, fragrance-free products and avoid aerosol sprays.

Get an air purifier
Start cleansing your lungs by improving the quality of the air in your home. You can purchase an air purifier that can be placed in individual rooms or invest in a household-wide purifier.
Indoor plants such as a fern, spider or aloe vera can help purify your air. You can also use an air purifying machine.

Change your house filters
Along with getting an air purifier, you should change all of the filters in your home and clean all vents, such as those in the bathroom or your air conditioning or heating vents. Be sure to replace your furnace filter at least every six months.
