• We spend 90% of our time indoors. Find out how to avoid common indoor pollutants to protect your health.

Change your cleaning habits

  • cleaning products

    Keep dust levels low, use fragrance-free or naturally scented products, switch to mild cleaning products and avoid aerosols.

Open your windows

  • open window to garden

    Good ventilation will help you avoid air pollution in the home, especially when cooking or using cleaning products. It will also help to stop mould.

Burn smokeless fuels or dry, well-seasoned wood

  • B B Q

    Pollution from burning fuels in wood burners, fire pits and BBQs damages the air for those who live nearby as well as within your own home.

Think twice before lighting your stove

  • wood burning stove

    To minimise your contribution to air pollution buy a Defra-approved stove, use authorised fuel, and only light it when you really have to.

Regularly service your boiler

  • boiler being serviced

    Carbon Monoxide from faulty boilers and heaters can be fatal so make sure you get your boiler serviced regularly.

Regularly compost

  • composting bins

    It’s better for our environment if you compost instead of burning garden waste.
