One of the most important things to consider for your health is your indoor air quality. Many people don’t think about it, but the air inside your home can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. Here are a few ways to improve your indoor air quality and keep you healthy:
Keeping A Clean Space
A clean house typically makes everything better, but especially your air quality. Things such as dust and animal dander can affect your breathing. Allergens can settle in rugs, carpets, curtains, throw pillows, and other furniture.
Change Your Air Filter
You’ve heard it before and we will say it again, remember to change your air filter. This not only keeps your system working properly, but also helps you breathe easily. A dirty air filter allows allergens to easily enter your home. This affects your air quality and the cleanliness of your house. A dirty air conditioning unit can also circulate dust and allergens throughout your home. Be sure to check its cleanliness before the summer season!
Invest In An Air Purifier
If you are someone who struggles with spring allergies, this may be the best solution for you. An air purifier removes contaminants that may be causing your allergies. The Active Air Purifier by Dust Free is an air purifier we strongly recommend. Along with an air purifier, you may consider a dehumidifier to place in damper rooms to help reduce possible organic growth.
Open Your Windows
If you or someone you live with is not prone to spring allergies, we recommend allowing fresh air into your house. Sometimes houses can get stuffy, especially after the winter season. Open a window and allow new air flow in your home. If you don’t believe us, the EPA also suggests fresh air to improve your indoor air quality. Depending on the temperature, opening a few windows can set your space at a comfortable temperature, which your energy bill would appreciate.
Check Your Air Ducts
Allergens can settle in your air ducts and harm your air. To make sure they are circulating clean, fresh air, have a Primary Air professional check them out and possibly perform duct cleaning during your spring maintenance.
