How to Improve Indoor Air Quality

May 14, 2019

Indoor air quality can be negatively impacted by fragrances, smoke, dust, and dirt tracked inside the house. Breathing clean, fresh air inside the home helps you stay healthier and keeps you in a better state of mind. Three things you can do to improve indoor air quality are having your ducts cleaned, cleaning the floors frequently and banning smoking inside the house.

Have Your Ducts Cleaned

Your ducts should be cleaned every 3-5 years to maintain great indoor air quality. Even though the duct system has filters, dust and other pollutants seep into the ducts over time. Fragrances, smoke and cooking smells collect in the ducts. These odors can cause musty smells to circulate through your house when the heating or cooling system runs.

Clean the Floors Frequently

Chemicals and allergens settle into the floors of your home. It’s important to use a high-quality vacuum with a HEPA filter to get stubborn pollutants out of your floor. A good vacuum cleaner will also have rotating brushes and strong suction. To assist in keeping clean floors, you can place doormats in front of the doors to your home. People track in pollutants on the bottom of their shoes. You can curb these pollutants with the use of doormats.

Don’t Allow Smoking Inside the House

Secondhand smoke hurts your indoor air quality, so it’s a good idea to implement a rule against smoking inside the house. Smoke doesn’t filter out of your home. Instead, it seeps into the furniture, the carpets, the walls, and the ducts. People who are exposed to secondhand smoke have higher risks of developing cancer, ear and respiratory infections, and other health problems. Children are more susceptible to falling ill from secondhand smoke.
