helpful for removing particles, like dust, that have accumulated on
surfaces such as floors, blinds, drapes, and decorative items. Regular
surface cleaning will help these particles keep from getting "stirred

to help keep pet dander at lower levels. Mold found in the home should
be removed immediately so mold spores do not become airborne.
2. Inspect Household Appliances -- Have your gas or oil company regularly
inspect your furnace, gas water heater, range and gas clothes dryer for
any leaks. If leaks are present, get them fixed immediately. Insure
that carbon monoxide detectors are installed and working properly.
3. Ventilate -- As the weather permits, open windows and doors to let
fresh air in and circulate throughout your home.
4. Clean Your Indoor Air -- Even in the cleanest of homes, your indoor air
can be dirty and further contribute to asthma and allergy symptoms.

purifiers are even effective at fighting germs such as bacteria,
viruses, mold spores and fungi. Consumers should use a portable air'/>"/>
