Many people don’t know that the air they breathe in their home is often more polluted than the air in a big, thriving city. Armed with this knowledge, you can now start to look for ways that you can improve your indoor air quality. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to share some tips that will help improve the indoor air quality in your home.
Keep Floors Clean to Increase Residential Air Quality
The dust mites that accumulate in the fibers of your carpet will attribute to poor indoor air quality. You need to be cleaning your flooring on a regular basis to make a dramatic difference in your air quality. Whether you are mopping hard floor surfaces or vacuuming carpeted flooring, it will all help in the effort to improve the air you are breathing.
Ideal Home Humidity Levels
Not only do dust mites enjoy a humid climate, but mold and mildew can easily grow when humidity levels get high. Keeping your home between 30-50% humidity will help you avoid dust mites as well as mold and mildew. If you have central air conditioning, it will work to remove added moisture to the air in your home as it cools your air.
Avoid Smoking Indoors to Reduce Air Pollution
Did you know that cigarette smoke contains more than 4,000 chemicals? Just think of all those chemicals floating in the air as you breathe it in. Not only does smoking have an adverse effect on the smoker’s health, but secondhand smoke can cause severe problems for anyone who breathes it. The best way to improve your health and the indoor air quality in your home is to stop smoking anytime you are inside.
Naturally Fresh Smelling House
There are many ways to freshen the air in your home. Several companies claim to sell fragrances that will mimic the smells that you can find in nature. These scented candles and sprays will fill your air with volatile organic compounds (VOCs). You should always look for products that have a low VOC content in them to avoid filling your air with these pollutants. Another option to avoid VOCs is to open your windows for some fresh air rather than trying to mimic it. There are also several household items that will leave your air smelling fresh like lemons and baking soda. You can also call and talk to Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning about installing air cleaning products in your home such as odor neutralizers.
