Allergens can creep into your home all year round, not just in the spring. Don’t let yourself be tortured this season – especially when you might be spending more time indoors celebrating with family and friends. Here are 4 tips to improve indoor air quality in your home.
For those that suffer from bad allergies, changing your air filters consistently and often is crucial. Dust, pollen, pollutants, and pet dander lower the air quality for everyone and can all contribute to breathing problems for people with allergies and asthma. If the pollen has caused you to suffer this season, you should be changing your air filters every 30 days to maximize your air quality and improve your allergies while at home.
Cleaning your HVAC ducts is as important as changing your air filters. By maintaining the ductwork you can not only catch issues before they happen but can help keep the air you breathe clean and pure. According to the EPA, there isn’t scientific evidence showing that routine air duct cleanings result in improved air quality. However, homeowners have reported improved allergies after a cleaning. We believe this is because your HVAC system can function more efficiently thus improving air quality.
Rugs and carpets are there to help filter dust and dirt out of your home by trapping it. Cleaning them weekly will help keep them working hard for you. Cleaning them allows the carpet or rugs to continue to collect dust and dirt from your home.
We recommend you make sure that your system is filtering out all the little things that can decrease your quality of life.
