This sponsored post will help you keep your family healthier by giving you tips to reduce pollution inside your vehicle.
You always are aware of the pollution outside your vehicle, but what about once you are inside? Even though you are closed off from the air outside, it can be just as hazardous, especially if you are in slow traffic or bumper to bumper driving.
Of course the first tip would be to regularly change out any air filters your vehicle has. Keeping on top of their maintenance schedule helps to ensure less toxins inside your car. In addition to that, keeping your vehicle regularly maintained will reduce both the pollution it produces (helping others around you) and the pollution you are closely exposed to.
What about how you drive? Doing things like driving in the carpool lane can help, since less traffic is typically in that lane. Also if you are in less traffic areas or open areas, keeping the windows cracked can help with air circulation and can keep carbon dioxide from building up in your vehicle. If you are stopped at a light, roll the windows back up so that you won’t be stuck breathing in the exhaust from any vehicles in front of you. Also try to keep some distance from the car in front of you, at least enough so that if it stalls, you can easily turn around it.
Try restraining from using air fresheners or deodorizers in the vehicle, and definitely don’t smoke while inside the car. Also keeping your car clean will help dust particles from combining with any potential pollutants in the vehicle, which can eventually be breathed in by passengers.
Hopefully these tips will help keep your vehicle a safe breathable area. If you have difficulty changing out the air filters in particular, taking the car to the dealership will guarantee its replaced correctly. Places such as the Len Stoler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership in Baltimore MD offer services such as this, so you can get back on the road and breathing freely without worry!
