10 Steps You Can Take to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Most of us spend the majority of our time indoors.

How do you go about improving the indoor air you spend so much time breathing? There are many opportunities to do so, but the best ways are often the simplest and easiest day-to-day habits you can change.
