Four Healthy Home Habits You Should Keep Following in a Post-Pandemic World

A growing number of countries are relaxing COVID-19 precautions as vaccinations increase, health protocols are continually updated and reported cases from new strains are on the decline. It looks like ‘returning to normal’ will be achievable in the near future along with preventing another health crisis, for as long as governments can sustain efforts such as careful monitoring and rigorous data collection.

There are many ways in which the pandemic has changed people’s lives. The good news is that indoor air quality is becoming increasingly recognized for its effects on health and safety, which has led to changes in people’s habits. Although restrictions are eased, good healthy home habits need to be maintained regardless. Here are a few of these practices that you can keep doing everyday.

Clean and Disinfect Around the House Regularly

Cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces in your home regularly is an important precaution to reduce infection risks. Aside from cleaning high-touch surfaces, make sure to clean areas prone to dust, mold, and mildew growth, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and bedrooms. Keep bedding, pillows, and other fabric furnishings clean to prevent dust mite infestations.

Choose Safe and Sustainable Products for the Home

Long periods of shut-in have taught us not just how to shop better, but also how to make discerning decisions about our health. People are increasingly turning to products for the home that promote healthy living and are also safe for the environment. From cleaning products that are chemical-free and eco-friendly, nontoxic building materials such as VOC-zero paints and solid surface floorings, to furnishings that use organic and sustainable materials, the options for responsible and healthy products have grown exponentially over the past few years, making a smart, healthy and eco-friendly home more possible than ever before.

Let Your Home Breathe Better

Ventilation is a word that has become more important today than ever before. By keeping your home well-ventilated, you are minimizing not only the risk of viruses transmitting and accumulating, but also ensuring that your indoor air quality is optimal for your health and the health of your family. You can ensure good ventilation in different ways – you can allow fresh air in by opening windows and doors, or you can use mechanical devices such as fans and filters to remove stale air and allow fresh air in.

Stay On Top of Your Indoor Air Quality

Improved indoor air quality control practices are an essential part of returning to a ‘new normal’ even though the direct threat of COVID-19 is diminishing. The increasing awareness of how pathogens spread through the air and how indoor air pollution negatively impacts health and safety requires us to constantly monitor what we breathe. As we move away from a reactive response system to a proactive and preventive approach, investing in innovative technologies such as indoor air quality monitoring systems that are accurate and always on, will allow us to remain ahead of any potential pandemics in the future.
