5 Easy Ways You Can Improve Air Quality in Your Home

indoor plants

Indoor air pollution is a problem because it can cause a variety of health problems, including respiratory infections, headaches, and dizziness. It is important to be aware of the sources of indoor air pollution and to take steps to reduce your exposure to them.

When lead particles are released into the air, they can be harmful to your lungs. Mould and mildew can grow in bathrooms and kitchens because there is usually more moisture in these rooms than in other parts of your house.

Here are some ways to make your indoor air safer to breathe.

1) Replace Your AC Filter Consistently

One of the most important things you can do to improve your indoor air quality is to replace your AC filter regularly. A dirty filter will not only make your AC unit work harder, but it will also circulate dust and other allergens throughout your home.

You should check your air conditioning filters every few months to see if they need to be replaced. If you live in an area with a lot of pollen or dust, you may need to replace your filters more often.

2) Keep Your Carpets and Rugs Clean

You should vacuum your carpets and rugs at least once a week to keep them clean and free of dirt and dust mites. For optimal results, change your vacuum bag after every use. You should also steam clean your carpets and rugs every few months to get rid of any deep-seated dirt, dust, or pollen that may be trapped in the fibers.

Carpets are an important part of any home, and keeping them clean is essential to maintaining a healthy environment. 

3) Check Your HEPA Filters

If your vacuum has a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter, be sure to check it periodically to make sure it’s clean. A dirty HEPA filter can actually do more harm than good, as it can allow allergens and other particles to escape back into the air.

HEPA filters can help reduce asthma and allergies by trapping dust and pollen particles. Many vacuum cleaners come with HEPA filters installed, but it’s important to check if you need to replace the filter on a new vacuum or if it needs to be replaced.

4) Add Indoor Plants

Indoor plants can help improve your indoor air quality by reducing the amount of dust and pollen in the air. If you have allergies, you may want to consider adding some plants to your home to help reduce your symptoms.

5) Keep Your Home Clean

Vacuuming and dusting regularly can help reduce the amount of allergens in your home. Be sure to vacuum carpets, upholstered furniture, and hard floors. Dust surfaces with a damp cloth or dust mop to avoid stirring up dust.

You can reduce indoor air contaminants by cleaning surfaces in your home. Additionally, you should clean any surface that has a film or layer of dust. This will help to prevent the build-up of contaminants in your home.

Conclusion

There are many things that people can do to improve the quality of indoor air. Some of these things are simple and easy, like opening a window or door to let fresh air in, or cleaning up clutter where dust can accumulate. But overall, by taking some simple steps, people can go a long way towards keeping the air in their homes clean and healthy.

Cody is very professional and knowledgeable. He responded quickly to my enquiry. He worked with us to ensure we could set up the ductwork and venting in a way that maximized the basement.

Climate experts came in for HVAC/boiler maintenance when we moved into our new house. They ended up finding a problem that went undiagnosed by our home inspection that could have been very dangerous. They then ended up installing a new boiler for us super quickly. It was obviously a sudden expense but Climate experts made the whole thing feel a lot better due to their professional and concern for our safety. The new boiler not only works, but is...dare I say...beautiful! The copper piping work that they did is a sight to behold. Who knew that we would be so excited to show our family/friends our cool new boiler. We absolutely recommend these folks—they are reliable, professional, and make even the typically boring part of the house feel nice and pretty. You are in good hands with them!
