The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America has declared May as National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. Did you know that the EPA states that indoor air pollution is 1 of the Top 5 Urgent Environmental Risks to public health? Indoor air pollution is dangerous. Air fresheners release VOC into the air, scented candles and incense may also contain harmful particulates, soot, and chemicals. The air in your home could be 2-5 times worse than outdoor air! In my home, we take indoor air quality very seriously as we all suffer from allergies. As a Filtrete Brand Ambassador, I received Filtrete filters and a promotional item to facilitate this post.

Cleaning Indoor Air Pollution in Our Home
In February, we put a new Filtrete Ultimate Allergen Reduction Filter into our air handler. It promised to capture up to 93% of household dust, pollen, mold spores, and dust mite debris. How do you think it did?! This is just 3 months of what the Filtrete filter captured in my home, I can’t imagine the indoor air pollution we would have without it!
You should change your air filters at least every 3 months. Out with the old….
…and in with the new. Don’t you just love putting in a brand new air filter in your heating or cooling unit? My husband does – a little too much! ha! Honestly, my whole family has benefited greatly from using Filtrete filters and changing them on time. It is night-and-day difference how my son’s allergies are now compared to when we had no air handler or filters.
The Filtrete Odor Reduction Filter is a good option to go with anytime of year, especially since we have a puppy! However, we are going to stick with the Allergen Filtrete Filter for another pollen-invested season.
With all the seasonal pollen we get next to the Cuyahoga National Park and pet dander that Roxy sheds, the Filtrete Allergen Filters seems to really be doing the trick to fight indoor air pollution in our home! Just don’t ask Roxy, she may have a different opinion! (She looks mean in this picture but really is just yawning! I couldn’t resist!)
