4 Tips to Improve Indoor Air Quality in Your Home
Frederick Air | April 20, 2018
Most of us spend the majority of our time indoors, so it’s of major importance to ensure proper air quality of our living spaces. The air pollution that exists outside is undeniable and people take all sorts of precautions to protect themselves and their loved ones, but they are often unaware of the fact that the air inside our homes can be just as polluted. Here are top 4 tips to improve indoor air quality in your home.
- Keep the Air Vents Clean: Air circulated through a building through the air vents and grills, so it is very important to keep these free from any sorts of obstructions. If you block these areas, the air inside your home won’t circulate. Poor ventilation causes numerous air pollutants, so cleaning air vents is a must. In addition, blocked grills put all the mechanical systems under strain and this can lead to costly repairs and high electricity bills. Air ducts need to be cleaned regularly.
- Use Air Cleaning Systems: Installing an air purifier is one of the most efficient ways of maintaining air purity in your home. High-quality cleaners can filter up to 99.97% of all airborne practices. There are also purifiers based on ultraviolet light, activated carbon, electrostatic precipitator, etc. UV light stops mold and bacteria growth inside your AC system. It also eliminates odors, keeping the air in your home fresh and clean. Having a quality air cleaner will bring numerous benefits to the health of your loved ones. No more odors lingering in the air, reduced amount of dust, no bacteria or viruses in the air – all of these lead to a healthier lifestyle, a better night’s sleep, and fewer illnesses.
- Keep humidity between 30% and 50%: With humidity at optimal levels, the growth of mold and the presence of dust mites is minimized. Some molds commonly found in our homes produce various allergens and mycotoxins which can have various effects on our health. Allergic reactions are very common (a runny nose, eye, and skin irritations) but also asthma attacks. Depending on the type of mold and the amount of it in your home, as well as the sensitivity of the person who is exposed, all of these can happen even to those who don't have allergies. Tracking humidity levels and using a dehumidifier or a humidifier to effectively control moisture is very important. A humidifier is just as important because dry air triggers many unpleasant conditions as well. Dry air causes dry skin, hair, and nails. It also causes dry throat and nose, as well as excessive static shock.
- Keep Your Home Clean and Tidy: In order to control bacteria, dust, and other forms of contaminations, you need to dust, vacuum, and sanitize frequently. Keeping your home clean and tidy is probably the first and most important step toward better air quality. Dust keeps forming constantly, so you can choose to just leave it there and breathe it, or you can choose better air quality for your home and clean regularly.
Deciding to improve the quality of air in your home is a valid first step. We can help you with other steps and make sure your home has the optimal air at all times. Contact us and we can create a solution that’s perfect for your home!
