How To Keep Your Home Properly Ventilated – Why is Ventilation Important?

Why is Ventilation Important?

Have you ever walked into a room and almost immediately felt like you just stepped into the sun? It’s as if you had a gush of hot wind flung at you, and you are left to wonder where all the fresh air had gone.

You can agree it’s hard to stay in that kind of environment, not to imagine if you live there. That will involve a lot of hot evenings and sweaty nights. Nobody deserves that! As a matter of fact, nobody should live like that.

Aside from the fact that it is good to have uninterrupted airflow, lack of ventilation can be detrimental to both your home and your health. In simple terms, it isn’t proper to live in a place with inadequate ventilation, and if you haven’t considered doing something about the stuffy place, you might want to start now.

Having a structural ventilation control helps you to moderate dampness and also moisture out of uninsulated walls. Without a ventilation system in your home, you’ll be able to rid of smoke, cooking odors, indoor pollutants, and all that. 

Having an apartment with fresh breathing air is a big deal, and if you think it’s not, this article will help you out to know how important it is.

 Improving ventilation in your home

Improving ventilation can help you reduce virus particles in your home. Aside from the fact that ventilation injects a good amount of fresh air into your home, it also helps you breathe better. 

Here are some tips to help you improve the ventilation in your space

Tips To Improve Ventilation In Your Home

  1. Open your windows: Open windows as much as possible whenever you’re at home. This will help clear out virus particles in your home faster. If you think it’s unsafe, using a fan as a replacement might be a great option. Although you can’t compare that to the natural breeze an open window will provide, fans spread a good amount of coolness that can make your room inhabitable and readily chill for you to enjoy. There are several kinds of fans that can serve this purpose. Depending on the size of your room, and your body type, as some people can get sick from the cold, picking the right fan that is conducive for both your room and you is a great decision you should explore.
  2. Limit the number of visitors to what your room can accommodate: Ever heard the phrase ‘Three is a crowd?’ Well, this is a good time to bring it back to your notice. Why? Because the more people stay longer in your home, the more clustered it becomes. An easy solution to this is to limit the number of visitors in your home per time. That way, you can get space for air to properly go around, even after they’ve left.
  3. Decluttering: There’s a special kind of people who love keeping stuff. They are not concerned about whether or not they need it, they just want it in their possession. Hoarders, that’s what they are called.  What they don’t know, however, is that too much stuff in a room can gather dust particles that contaminate the little air that flow in. This doesn’t just make the home an unhealthy space, too much stuff in a place can barely give you enough room to live. If you fall under this category, we always recommend you ensure your space is adequately disinfected and cleaned to terminate the dust particles. Another great method you can try is decluttering. By simply moving out some stuff either by selling unwanted items you barely use or by donating them to a relative or loved one, you can make more space for yourself in your room. In the case where you may be too attached to your items, you might as well create ways to get your room ventilated. Maybe more windows perhaps, or you can try option number 4.
  4. Plants: Indoor plants are a great accessory for homes. Not only are they healthy, but they also provide a natural beauty to your room. A plant like the Snake plant is highly recommended for improving air quality. The benefits are mind-blowing. It’s not expensive and needs low-quality maintenance so you won’t have to spend time catering for it. One of the extraordinary abilities is that the snake plant converts CO2 into oxygen at night.


    Having a clean-living space is much more than shiny floors and well-dusted corners. The airflow in the room counts as well, and proper ventilation is a sure way of making sure you get enough air to breathe in the room you stay in. 

    Most times, it’s not that people don’t care, it’s just that they are too lazy to implement most of the things they already know. Not just with ventilation, but also with basic cleaning. The cost-effective way is hiring the service of cleaning service like us.
