Top Tips to Improve your In-Home Air Quality

If you want to talk about good in-home air quality just talk to my sister who buys 10 air filters at a time! Now, I tease her about that, but really, it is important for all of us to keep the air quality in our homes as good as it can be because clean air can actually help us live a healthier life. When you have poor air circulation combined with bad air quality indoors, your allergies can flair up, you won’t sleep well, and even worse, you can get sick, an infection, or develop a chronic illness. But all is not lost; you can improve your indoor air quality to help you reduce respiratory problems.

Here are a few things to remember when thinking about improving your in-home air quality:

Be sure to clean your ceiling fan! Those blades can get loaded with dust and when you turn it the dust spreads everywhere, and you’re breathing it in!

Change your air filter; maybe my sister is on to something? There are different levels of air filters for every size home and degree of filtration. If you have a lot of outdoor traction coming in, mold, dust mites, secondhand smoke, a pet, you’ll need a higher quality air filter. And don’t forget you need to change your filter every 3 months, even if it looks clean. You may also want to purchase an air purifier for your home to clean the air faster.

Vacuuming your hardwood and carpeted floors is a must to remove dirt. It also helps with pet dander, cat hair, outside debris, allergens, and mites dust. Don’t forget to suck up those cobwebs on the ceiling in the corners of the room and you will clean up the air from top to bottom. Be sure to use a vacuum with a HEPA filter so you can get rid of other toxins as well.

For professional help call your HVAC folks have them clean out the trapped dust from your air ducts. By cleaning the ducts in your home the system run smooth, and efficient.

Indoor air quality can be a problem at the office or your workspace too, so it’s important to know what to look for.

It’s time to give your in-home air quality a boost so you can breathe easy!
