Improving Air Quality in your Home

During the summer season you are spending a lot of time outside. However, it is important that you don’t forget about your home and indoor air quality. Allergens can be a huge annoyance in your household and improving air quality will help to remove some of those allergens. Read on to learn about our tips for improving air quality in your home and removing allergens. 

  • Change your air filters regularly. It is recommended that you change your air filters every three to four months, or more frequently if you have pets. Keeping your air filters clean will help to keep the air in your home clean because they prevent allergens and dust from spreading throughout your home.
  • Control the humidity in your home. Allergens such as mold and dust mites are attracted to and thrive when moisture is present. To improve humidity, invest in a dehumidifier and make sure that your air conditioner is working properly and efficiently. 
  • Use natural cleaning products. Many people don’t know that the chemicals in many popular household cleaners can add pollutants to the air in your home. A simple way to improve air quality is to opt for all-natural cleaning products, that don’t use harsh chemicals. 
  • Keep your floors clean. This may seem like an obvious thing to do, but cleaning your floors on a regular basis can help eliminate allergens from the air. Dust and debris accumulate on the floor and fly into the air if they are not cleaned regularly.
