One of the reasons that people, especially families, seem to get sick, and stay sick in the winter months is due to the air quality in your own house. By keeping the house closed up tight for winter, you're keeping the heat in, but you're also keeping in everything else in the air. On a beautiful spring-like day like today, it's a great idea to open your windows, even if just for 15 minutes, to allow the air to circulate through the home. This is also a Home Staging tip that I give to clients - when listing your home for sale, be sure to open you windows for 5 minutes every day to allow the stale air to be released. This will help to ensure that any stale odours can escape before potential buyers come through.
