How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

The EPA has discovered that indoor air can be 2-5 times more polluted than the air in bigger cities. Indoor air is also more still. While we’d all like to be able to open the windows and get some fresh air, that’s not always an option, especially this winter. There are some easy things you can do to boost your indoor air quality and live in a healthier home environment.

Keep Your Home Clean

A vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and rotating brushes is a sound investment in the air quality of your home. Vacuuming once a week with a HEPA-certified vacuum will lessen the dust and allergens stacking up in your carpets and upholstered furniture.

There are some particles that sneak by your vacuum no matter how clean you keep your home. If you or someone in your home suffers from allergies, a PureAir™ Air Purification System might be just what you need. This system is a whole-home solution that takes care of particles and odors, and eliminates chemical vapors – all things that could severely affect respiratory problems.

Air Purifying Plants

Plants are a natural way to clean your air and all plants absorb carbon dioxide and discharge oxygen. Also, there are some plants that have been found to also eliminate harmful toxins such as: benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene.

If If you want an air purifying plant for your home, you can find a list of those plants by looking at the NASA Clean Air Study. If you have pets, you’ll want to check and ensure any plants you’re adding to your home are not harmful to them if they want to give them a taste test.

Keep Your Home Ventilated

Modern homes are designed to keep outdoor air out of your home in order to keep its energy efficiency. This lack of ventilation means a build up of air pollutants inside. While it’s easy to go ahead and crack a window, that may not solve it, which is why we carry a few different ventilation solutions to help improve your indoor air quality and keep your home’s air clean and fresh.
