How To Improve The Indoor Air Quality In Your Home
Improving Indoor Air Quality In Your Home
Making an effort to improve indoor air quality in your home can help you avoid asthma flare-ups and allergy symptoms and keep you breathing easily through the colder months.
While it’s probably not possible to eliminate all the allergens inside your home, you can reduce the number and exposure to them by making some simple changes.
Here are some strategies you can use to improve indoor air quality inside your home and hopefully improve your allergy symptoms.
Keep A Clean House
A clean house always equates to a healthier place. Thorough housekeeping can significantly reduce pet dander, dust and dust mites, or even pollen tracked in or accumulated within your home. Vacuum your furniture, rugs, and carpets at least once a week to minimize allergens and contaminants inside your home.
Let The Fresh Air In
Open windows periodically, even during the cold months, to air out your home’s interior. Use exhaust fans to pull cooking fumes from the kitchen and moisture from bathrooms.
Change Your Furnace Filter
If you have a forced-air heating system, be sure to change the filters regularly. Electrostatic filters can help ensure that dust and other airborne irritants get trapped instead of being recirculated throughout your home.
Also, consider having your ducts cleaned to remove trapped dust. It may not always be advisable, but it helps in some cases.
Keep The Humidity Low
Dust mites and mold spores can quickly increase in hot, humid air, so be mindful of the humidity levels within your home. Opt for shorter warm showers instead of long, hot baths or showers.
Maintain HVAC System
Hire an HVAC professional to check your HVAC system to make sure they are functioning at peak efficiency. Furnaces and boilers should be serviced twice yearly to address potential issues.
