With so many of us now working from home, it is important to create a home workplace that is as productive and healthy as possible, and that includes the air that we breathe.
Research1 shows that employee productivity can improve by as much as 61% when air quality is improved.
4 simple steps to improve the air quality in your home:
- Open windows regularly to prevent air pollutants building up
- Stick to fragrance-free of milder cleaning products
- Only use your open fire or stove when essential, and if you do only burn dry, well-seasoned wood or smokeless fuel
- When cooking, cleaning or decorating use extractor fans and open windows
