Are you planning on moving into a new home or building this year?  If so, you are going to need some supplies to get you started with proper indoor air care.

Taking care of your indoor air the right way is key to making your valuable health last.  The following items are absolute essential products for anyone looking to take care of their indoor air properly so they can enjoy it all year long.

1. Microfibre Cloth

Probably the one item you will use most of all, a microfiber cloth will let you easily remove dust, dirt and even sponge up water in a flash.  After all, no one wants to breathe in air that is filled with floating dust particles or potential mould.  So pick up a microfiber cloth and start removing those contaminants as you work to keep your indoor air clean once the cleaning week hits.

2. Vacuum Cleaner

Not all dust, dirt and mould spores will be sitting on top of surfaces ready to be wiped away, most will begin to collect on the bottom of your carpet and soft furnishings, behind furnishings and in corners.  In order to reach that dust and get rid of it once and for all, a vacuum with a HEPA filter and power head is simply a necessity.  It will easily pound and suck away the dust and contaminants so your room looks clean from the top down to the very floor.
