Here at Air Pure Air Duct Cleaning we have many customers that will ask us what they can do to improve their indoor air quality in between air duct cleanings. Today we are going to take some time to talk to you about a variety of different things that you can do to help your family breathe in excellent air when they are in your home.
Dirt Trapping Door Mats
If everyone that comes into your house wipes their shoes off on a doormat before they enter your home it will help improve the indoor air quality of your home. This will reduce the amount of pollutants that enter your home.
Taking Shoes Off in House
Simply having your family and guests take their shoes off when they are inside your home will improve your indoor air quality. The best option is if you can leave the shoes outside on your front porch or inside your garage but if neither of these are feasible just inside your door also works. This will help chemicals, pollen, dirt, and dust stay on your shoes and not get into the air of your home.
No Smoking Indoors
One of the worst things for your indoor quality is cigarette smoke. The pollutants that smoking indoors brings in your home just are not worth it. Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals in it. These chemicals build up inside your home. The chemicals can cause physical property damage as well as health problems. It is best to smoke outdoors.
Air Out House in Winter
If you open your windows or doors for 5-10 minutes a day it can help improve your air quality. If you can ventilate your house after you cook or use cleaning products it is especially helpful. Keeping your house well ventilated will help with your air quality.
Avoid Air Fresheners
Many homeowners love to use air fresheners, scented candles, incense, and more to keep their house smelling nice. These products emit chemicals into the air that can reduce your indoor air quality. If you have anyone in your home that suffers from headaches, asthma, or allergies this will help them specifically.
Most homeowners vacuum their floors on a regular basis. If you could increase how often you are vacuuming it will help get rid of particles that are on your floors. This is especially true if you have carpet in your home. Non-carpeted rooms can still benefit from regular vacuuming or sweeping as well though. Do not forget to clean your vacuum out often as well.
Change Air Filters
The air filters in your home are designed to trap air pollution particles from going through your home’s ventilation system. If these filters get too dirty they can no longer perform their function properly. You will want to make sure that you change your filters so that they can keep trapping those unwanted particles. How often you should change your filters will depend on what type of filters you have in your home.
