When we think of pollution we typically think of outdoor pollution caused by old cars and big factories. While outdoor air pollution is something that we should be aware of, studies show that we should actually be more concerned about indoor air pollutants. In the United States we spend more time indoors than outdoors. If our indoor air is polluted it will affect our health in a variety of ways. Our customers health and safety are a top priority here at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning. In an effort to help keep you safe, we are going to give you some ways to reduce the indoor air pollutant in your home.
Microfiber Cloth for Dusting
Dust is one of the most common indoor air pollutants. There is no way to prevent dust from being in your home. Even the most dutiful cleaners will end up with dust in their home. Dusting your home on a regular basis will help reduce the indoor air pollutants in your home. We recommend that you use a microfiber dusting cloth for best results.
Does Vacuuming Improve Air Quality?
Each and every day our flooring gets walked on by the members of our household. As we walk on our flooring we get the dirt and grime from the bottom of our shoes or feet onto our flooring. This combines with food, dust, and pet hair to get our flooring dirty and decrease our indoor air quality. Vacuuming our flooring regularly will help solve this problem.
Dirt Trapping Door Mats
Our next tip ties right into the importance of vacuuming regularly. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning strongly recommends that you use doormats in your home. When everyone wipes their shoes off before they come into your home less pollutants will be carried into your home.
Cigarette Smoking Causes Indoor Air Pollution
If you are a smoker you will want to seriously consider having a no smoking policy in your home. The American Lung Association has frequently reported results of studies showing all of the terrible issues caused by smoking indoors. One of the largest concerns is the risk secondhand smoke causes for everyone in your home. You can significantly reduce the amount of pollutants in your home by having everyone smoke outdoors.
Open a Window to Improve Indoor Air Quality in Your House
One nice and easy way to improve your indoor air quality is to open the windows. When you open your windows, you allow the fresh air to come into your home. You will want to make sure that the pollen count is not too high on the day that you choose to open your windows.
Change Air Filters in Home
Your air conditioning unit requires an air filter to help it work properly. Over time your air filter needs to be replaced because it is too dirty to continue to do its job effectively. Follow the manufacturers suggestions on the frequency.
Air Duct Cleaning
Air duct cleaning removes all the dust, dirt and debris that builds up in your air ducts and circulates through the ventilation system of your home. If it has been more than a few years, or you don’t remember the last time, schedule air duct cleaning today and see what a difference it makes in helping your family breathe easier!
