Tips To Create an Airway-Friendly Bedroom

Updated: Jan 26

Many factors contribute to a good night’s sleep. One of the most overlooked is good air quality. Clean, fresh air is essential for overall health and can improve your sleep. Continue reading for tips on creating an airway-friendly bedroom to enhance your sleep and breathe easier at night.

What Is an Airway-Friendly Bedroom?

An airway-friendly bedroom is optimized for air quality and flow, reducing potential allergens and maintaining an ideal humidity level. Research has shown poor indoor air quality can lead to health issues, including allergies, asthma, and more. Creating a better environment can contribute to less snoring, easier breathing, and restful sleep.

Steps to an Airway-Friendly Bedroom

● Ensure Proper Ventilation

Improper ventilation can cause a buildup of carbon dioxide, pollutants, and allergens in your bedroom. Open your windows and doors regularly to air your room and help circulate fresh air.

● Use an Air Purifier

Air purifiers can effectively remove pollutants, allergens, and irritants from the air. Choose a device with a HEPA filter for the best results.

● Maintain the Correct Humidity Level

High humidity can encourage the growth of mold and dust mites, while low humidity can cause dryness in the throat and nose. Strive to keep your room’s humidity level between 40% and 60%. Use a humidifier or dehumidifier as necessary.

● Avoid Air Pollutants

Try to minimize the presence of pollutants like smoke, strong perfumes, or other airborne chemicals. They can trigger allergies and respiratory issues.

● Keep Your Bedroom Clean

Regular cleaning can help reduce allergens like dust and pet dander. Be sure to vacuum regularly and wash your bedding in hot water to kill dust mites.

● Consider Adding Indoor Plants

Certain indoor plants — particularly snake and spider plants and English ivy — can help improve air quality by reducing carbon dioxide levels and removing toxins from the air.
