The main enemy is a tiny particle called dust, which can provide air pollution problems. Dust makes easy entry to homes. Doors, windows and other direct openings are its greatest welcomers. Unvent- ed clothes.dryers, appliances and home workshops are major contributors. . There are Borne tools to remove home air 'pollution from the air and fight it at its source. r Kitchen exhaust fans can remove vaporiied oils and unwanted food 1 odor. Easy-to- install clothes dryer vents are usually more efficient than dryer llht traps. Vacuum cleaner bags should be emptied frequently to prevent trapped dust from being forced back intdtheair. Dust ff6m home workshops can be reduced by an exhaust fan and Heavy duty vacuum cleaners... Dusty.repair work and use of highly-volatile liquids should .take place in areas where the polluted air cannot circulate throughout .the home. "' Furnace air filters should be changed at least every month, especially during the home heating season. Tests conducted by Owens- Corning Ftberglas Corporation r maker of Fiberglas Dust-Stop filters,.indicate that frequent replacement of furnace air. filters also can help keep the furnace operating at peak efficiency. But if the air flow is restricted by a dirty filter, it could require the furnace to operate for longer periods of time in order to raise the air temperature to a comfortable level. Another source of household air pollution is cleaning agents. These should never be combined. In some cases, the mixture could release toxic gases. Read labels Carefully.
