This blog will cover some basic tips that will help make sure you keep the air in your home free of dust, dirt and other particles that can be both annoying and harmful.
There’s a good chance that the air in your home is not as clean as you think it is. Depending on the foliage around your home, your lifestyle and the season there can be a lot of different pollutants within your walls. So the first thing you should do when fighting allergies is to understand what you’re fighting.
The best way to remove dust and dirt in your home is the old fashioned way. Dust, vacuum and clean your home to remove any visible dust and clear the air. If you have a pet, make sure you bathe them regularly to keep shedding at a minimum. Even though these are basic tasks that we all do, they’re much more important during seasons where the pollutants are in abundance.
Change your filters
Filters capture particles in your airways, preventing them from being part of a continuous cycle. You should be changing filters every few months following the seasons. You should also consider upgrading the kind of filter you have been using for one with a higher MERV rating. The higher the MERV rating, the more particles it will catch.
Find & Seal Leaks
If there is an air leak in your home, you will never be able to prevent dust and dirt buildup properly. Look for air leaks in the foundation and walls of your home. Finding them and then sealing them will pay dividends in the battle to keep your dirt and dust out of your home.
Air needs to flow in your home because stagnant air can lead to mold and pollutant build up. Clean your ductwork to optimize your AC and make sure it is prepared for continuous use. Free flowing air has a way of filtering out unwanted particles in your home. So check to make sure your home is ventilated today!
Invest in IAQ Products
Air purifiers, ventilators, humidifiers and more. There are so many products to choose from that can make the air in your home clean and healthy to breathe.
Air Purifiers can eliminate contaminants directly from the air in your home, reducing serious allergy and respiratory symptoms by a significant margin.
Humidifiers will maintain a healthy level of humidity in your home. Too much humidity in your home will cause mold growth, and too little will make it easier for unwanted particles to remain inside. So utilizing this product to produce healthy air is a great idea!
Ventilators help keep the air moving, which, as we’ve previously discussed, is essential to filtering out pollutants and contaminants.
UV Lamps are also available to remove the smallest threats to your indoor air quality. Install them in your ductwork to eliminate harmful bacteria from your home’s air.
