Ways to rid the air of un­healthy el­e­ments

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HOME & LIVING -

Some air- con­di­tion­ing sys­tems in­clude a de­hu­mid­i­fier set­ting too, so you might ben­e­fit from the next upgrade.

For bath­rooms and kitchens, an ex­trac­tor fan can help cut down on mois­ture from steam.

4. Buy a hoover that has a High Ef­fi­ciency Par­tic­u­late Air ( HEPA) fil­ter and that uses a sealed air sys­tem.

This is a high- qual­ity fil­ter, used in hospi­tals, lab­o­ra­to­ries and other sen­si­tive ar­eas, that is guar­an­teed to pick up pollen and dust mite fae­ces.

Do be care­ful as some prod­ucts use the fil­ter but don’t have a sys­tem that makes the most of it.

5. Use glass lamp­shades. Lamps trap dust but when they are made of cloth, es­pe­cially pat­terned cloth, you might not no­tice when they be­come grubby.

If you use glass, you can just wipe them as part of your clean­ing rou­tine.
