LizzieWeakley posted a blog entry in Lizzie Weakley's Green BlogMost people maintain a clean interior setting each week while spending time at home. The air quality in your home has an influence on the health of residents who live on the property and will determine how well you breathe while spending time in the building. If you want to purify your space, there are a few important steps to take. 1. Use an Air Purifier An air purifier is a useful product that will remove dust, pollen, and pet dander that is present in the air. Use the product in the most used rooms in the home and keep it running for several hours each day to clean the air. 2. Replace Your HVAC Filter The filter on your HVAC system needs to be replaced every 30 to 60 days, depending on how much you're using it for each season of the year. The HVAC filter can become dirty over time and can cause dirt and dust to begin to circulate in the home. You can also have your air ducts cleaned and remove pollutants in the home, which includes synthetic fragrances and cleaning products that contain chemicals, according to apartmenttherapy.com. Opt for using household ingredients when cleaning and use soy candles indoors. 3. Schedule an HVAC Inspection Hire professionals from a company like Smedley & Associates to perform an inspection of your HVAC system and look for any repairs that are needed. The technicians can clean the parts and inspect them to ensure that cleaner air circulates in the home. 4. Close Your Windows Closing the windows is necessary to prevent pollen and environmental elements from entering the home to maintain a clean interior setting. You'll also want to use screens on the windows if you keep them open at certain times of the year. 5. Use a Vacuum Cleaner with a HEPA Filter When cleaning your home, use a vacuum that contains a HEPA filter to ensure that the dust and dirt aren't released from the product and go back into the air. Vacuum each week and shake out rugs every few days. Although you may suffer from allergies, asthma, or respiratory issues, there are ways to increase your indoor air quality. With the right products used and steps taken, you can create a cleaner interior setting that allows you to breathe deeply and improve any health issues or ailments that you may be suffering from throughout the year.
Most people assume that they have clean air in the home and that their environment is safe to live in, but pollutants and dust from the outdoors are known to settle inside of buildings. This can often lead to asthma and allergies for many residents in each season of the year. To increase your home's air quality and create a cleaner setting, there are a few important steps to take to breathe easier. Replace Your HVAC Filters The filters in your HVAC system will circulate dirty air if they aren't replaced every few months. Install new air filters several times a year to ensure that the dirt that is captured in the air doesn't recirculate in the home. Use an Air Purifier An air purifier is extremely effective at cleaning the air and removing contaminants that are present. This includes removing second-hand smoke that has accumulated in homes where smokers are present. Dust, pollen, and pet dander will also be eliminated to make it easier to breathe and avoid allergies in each season of the year. Use the air purifier in each room of the home for several areas to ensure that the product works effectively in a small setting. Keep the Windows Closed Although most people open up their home's windows to allow fresh air in, it can cause pollution and pollen to enter the home easily. Make it a point to keep the windows closed during the spring season to secure the interior setting. Rely on fans to circulate the air and keep the home cooler during the day. You also want to check the air quality level in your local area each day to determine if it's safe to leave the windows open for a few hours. Schedule an Inspection Hire a company like AirCheck One to perform an inspection to pinpoint specific areas in the home that have poor air quality levels. Gases, mold spores, lead, and particulate matter will all be discovered if they're present in the home to create a more habitable environment. It can be difficult to prevent toxins and allergens from entering your home each day, but there are still many ways of purifying the air and increasing your health over time. With the right tools and equipment used, you can enjoy having clean air in your home and reducing the effects of certain health conditions that you may suffer from.
