Changing Furnace Filters & Spring Cleaning For PF Patients
I hope everyone in our online forums community is keeping safe and managing well amid the COVID-19 pandemic and social isolation. Remember to take care of your mental health during this time, and ask for help or support if you’re in need!
Since being discharged from the hospital, and now having to spend only time within the four walls of my home; I’ve been giving some thought to spring cleaning, organization that I’ve wanted to get done and other small tasks around the house. Since the weather is getting warmer here in Canada, and we’re facing prolonged periods of time indoors, it feels like the perfect time to open some windows, turn up some music and do some cleaning/organizing!
While compiling my list, I wrote down the need to change my furnace filter and then tried to recall whether I’ve already done this in the last few months. I can’t remember so by default, I am just going to replace it/change again. I’d rather do this more often as opposed to less. This led me to think about other IPF/PF patients…. how often do you change and replace your furnace filters? Was this a decision you made, or one recommended by your physician?
What are some other regular tasks you do around your home/clean regularly to keep your lungs as healthy as possible?
