How to Improve Air Quality in Your Home

When we think about pollutants and air quality, we generally think of elements and chemicals found outside of our homes. However, indoor quality is just as important as the quality of our air outside, if not more. The air quality in your home has a direct effect on your overall health. It’s critical that you take steps within your home to help keep your air quality clean and healthy for you and your family.

Keep Your Home Clean

A clean house is a healthy house. Proper home hygiene helps to cut back on pollutants and allergens including pet hair and dander, dust, mold, and nasty bacteria. We recommend vacuuming your carpets and rugs at least once or twice a week. Ensure that you’re using a vacuum cleaner that’s equipped with a HEPA filter to properly remove any contaminants and pollutants found in these areas.

We also recommend regularly cleaning your bedding, drapes, upholstery, and other items that attract dog hair or other pollutants. Be sure to keep the clutter under control as well, as it can harbor lots of dust, dog hair, and other allergens.

Maintain Proper Humidity Levels

High levels of humidity and moisture within your home can breed nasty mildew and mold, which can trigger respiratory problems, such as asthma and allergies. If you live in a place that gets really humid during the summer, we suggest purchasing some dehumidifiers for your home to help cut back on the level of moisture found within your home.

We also recommend being careful to avoid overwatering any plants within your home, as this can increase the humidity levels and promote mold growth as well.

Avoid Smoking Inside

If you or one of your family members smoke, it’s critical that you avoid doing so inside your home, as cigarette smoke is one of the most potent and harmful contributors to indoor pollution. Cigarette smoke contains more than 4,00 chemicals, which can increase the risk for developing serious conditions, such as ear and respiratory problems, asthma, and even cancer.

To avoid contaminating your indoor air quality with cigarette smoke, we recommend always smoking outside and keeping all doors and windows closed while you do so, to ensure that no secondhand smoke makes its way into your home.

Open Vents While Cooking

Believe it or not, many of the pollutants found in your home come from the kitchen. If you have a gas stove, this is particularly true, as they release harmful contaminants such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide. While you’re cooking, be sure to open a window or turn on the kitchen vents to help filter these contaminants from your air.

Add Some Greenery

Not only do indoor plants serve as cute decorations, but they also work to freshen your air quality. They work to pull pollutants out of your air, leaving you with fresher, healthier air quality in your home.

Change Your Air Filters

Another important step that can help you improve the air quality within your home is regularly checking and changing your air filters. While the air filter in your HVAC unit is among the most important filters that works to keep your air clean, you should be sure to check the air filters in your other appliances as well, including your vacuum cleaner, dryer, kitchen vents, etc.

Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned

The air ducts in your home work to distribute hot and cold air throughout your home to help make you and your family more comfortable. However, ducts that aren’t clean not only distribute hot or cool air, but also the contaminants within them. Over time, pollutants such as dust, mites, bacteria, and an array of chemicals and allergens may begin to build up in your ducts, posing a major health threat to you and your family.

We recommend regular air duct cleaning done by a professional to promote the cleanest, healthiest air possible.
