Indoor air quality is important, especially in the winter.
In the winter months, our indoor air quality can become unhealthy because our homes are shut up to keep out the winter elements. Common allergens, such as cleaning chemical fumes, dust, dust mites, pet dander, and mold spores, can build up more and more in the air you breathe, and unfortunately, there isn’t much of an escape when the house is closed up so tightly. However, there are some steps you can take to ensure you are breathing healthier air.
Here are 3 simple tips for products you can use and tasks you can perform to promote healthy indoor air in your home this winter:
- Change your air filters regularly. The number one thing you can do is often the most simple. Changing your HVAC system’s air filters at least once a month can go a long way in helping to keep your indoor air quality where it needs to be to promote good health—not to mention your HVAC system will work more efficiently with clean air filters.
- Consider investing in and installing an air purifying system. A good quality indoor air filtration system has the ability to remove over 99% of your home’s indoor air pollutants. This makes a pretty big impact on your home’s air.
- Vacuum regularly. Even though we usually think of vacuuming as floor cleaning rather than air cleaning, the more dust and dander you can suck up, the better. Vacuum your floors, furniture, and mattresses frequently to help keep any build-up from forming, lingering, and filling the air around you and your loved ones.
Something to consider when striving for the best indoor air quality for your home is to have a professional indoor air quality check.
