Purify your home, not just the air. Air purifiers can do wonders for removing particulate matter from the air; the problem is that dust, pet dander and the like don't stay in the air for long. Allergens drift to the ground and become embedded in rugs and soft furnishings — places an air purifier cannot reach. A combination approach will reduce indoor air pollution and allergens more than any one method alone. Here are a few strategies to try:Remove wall-to-wall carpeting; go for easy-to-clean hard flooring and washable area rugs.Vacuum and dust with a microfiber cloth regularly.Ban smoking in and around the house.Do not use a fireplace.Do use the exhaust fans over the stove and in the bathroom.Make a no-shoes policy.
Open and airy in Dallas. This light and bright foyer is calm and cushy, like the rest of the home. Young parents Katie and Steve Aldrich filled their house with light colors and lots of comfy upholstered kiddo-friendly furniture. See the rest of this home
The big finish. In high-traffic areas or rooms that will be used by children and pets, go for a paint with a little sheen, because it will be easier to clean. “With families and dogs, you want something durable, but you don’t want it to look like that first apartment you rented, with shiny walls,” says Daly. That’s why she recommends an eggshell finish, which has the least possible sheen but is easier to clean than flat paint, and has a smooth surface (unlike flat), so dirt has nothing to grab on to.Satin, the paint with the next-higher level of shine, is also an option, although some consider the finish a little colder. The reflective finish also tends to make imperfections in walls easier to see. Touch-ups. Despite your best efforts, kids will be kids, and the wall might get soiled, burnished or drawn upon. Daly’s first line of defense for cases like that is Krud Kutter, a nontoxic cleaner that removes almost anything you throw at it. (In fact, she gives it to newlyweds as a gift.) If Krud Kutter doesn’t “kut” it, you may need to repaint the damaged area. That’s harder than it sounds, as it’s difficult to paint a small area without the patch showing. The new coating will affect the thickness of the paint and the density of the color, causing the area to reflect light differently. You best bet is to repaint that whole section of wall. If you don’t want to do that, try feathering the edges of the patch into the surrounding area, using a disposable foam brush. The touch-up will be easier to hide on light- or medium-colored surfaces.

Clear the Air: A Guide to Indoor Air Purifiers Photo 3 of 9 How air purifiers work. There are a few different types of air purifiers on the market, and not all of them are especially effective or safe. It is important to know what you are buying, so read the fine print on your air purifier before purchasing. The main thing to check is how the purifier cleans the air. It will likely use one or more of these methods: High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter: This is the most common and one of the most effective methods available. Activated carbon: Usually used with a HEPA filter or another filter, activated carbon can help reduce pollution by attracting some chemicals, which bond to the surface of the carbon. Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) cleaners: These use a UV light to kill viruses, bacteria, allergens and some molds. Electrostatic precipitators: Particles entering the purifier are given a charge, then trapped on oppositely charged plates. These machines create a small amount of ozone, which is a lung irritant and pollutant itself, so this type of purifier is probably best avoided. Not effective as an air purifier at all, ozone generators are being marketed as air cleaners, but they actually add lung-irritating ozone to your home, which can be hazardous. The EPA does not recommend buying ozone generators.

satin (although this may make inperfections more noticeable) or eggshell finish are easiest to clean. acrylic based paint is pretty good, choose low or zero VOC paint to reduce environmental pollution in the home). for high traffic areas, go ahead and get expensive paint; it's more durable and lasts longer. cheaper paint for less visited rooms.
