All Expectant Mothers Need to Know These Tips About IAQ

If you’re reading this, then congratulations are definitely in order! Whether this is your first child or you’ve been through this wonderful process before, it’s certainly an exciting time. We want your pregnancy and your baby to be as safe as possible, so it’s important to us that you learn as much as you can about the importance of proper IAQ for pregnant women and how to ensure the cleanliness of your air.

How Your Pregnancy Can Be Affected by IAQ

As fantastic as being pregnant can be, it can also make you more susceptible to certain contaminants in the air. When indoor air quality is especially bad, possible complications for your baby include low birth weight, preterm birth, asthma, autism, and miscarriage, among other possible risks. While the most severe of these are quite rare, protecting your child must always be taken seriously.

Tips to Help You Achieve Good IAQ

The good news is that achieving good indoor air quality isn’t tough as long as you follow some simple steps. Here are a few of our favorite suggestions:

  • Purchase Air Purifiers. These devices are great at cleaning your air and will remove 99.97% of harmful pollutants, thanks to a HEPA filter.
  • Reduce Harmful Contaminants. It goes without saying that you must avoid dangerous elements like cigarette smoke, but you also need to stay away from toxic cleaning products, aerosols, and other airborne elements.
  • Try Air-Purifying Plants. There are a few different types of air-purifying plants, such as spider and snake plants, that clean your air by replacing carbon dioxide with oxygen and removing harmful organic compounds.
  • Stay Aware of Pollution. Pay attention to any pollution warning for your area and stay indoors as needed.

If you follow the tips above and stay aware of your surroundings, you and your baby will be safer throughout your pregnancy. If you need more expert advice about the importance of maintaining good IAQ for pregnant women or have other home-comfort concerns, reach out to the professionals at NisAir Air Conditioning.
