3 Ways to Improve Air Quality in the Home
Air quality can be an important factor in your home regarding odors, allergens, and the family’s overall health. It is a great time to assess and take action on the air quality in your home. At Guardian Home Services, we are here to help with many of your home service needs. Today, we are sharing the top three ways to improve the air quality within your home.
1. Manage Furry Family
Our cats, dogs, and other furry friends are part of our family. However, they can add to the allergen build-up in our homes. Assess how much your pets may contribute to the air in your home. Adding a regular grooming schedule, frequent vacuuming, dusting, and cleaning pet beds can help to keep these allergens to a minimum.
2. Deep Clean Textiles
Pesky allergens and pet dander can easily stick to any soft texture in the home. Develop a regular schedule of cleaning sheets, curtains, entry mats, and area rugs. Periodic carpet and floor cleaning can also help to keep any breathing disruptors out of your home.
3. Professionally Clean Air Ducts
The buildup of mold, pollutants, and other allergens can be hiding in your air ducts, even when your home appears spotless. While your HVAC does its job to filter and refresh air, the particles can build up over time in the ducts. Air ducts should be cleaned every three to five years, at minimum. Cleanings should be more frequent if there is a history of mold, pets are in the home, a smoker resides or resides in the home, or if a family member has asthma or a higher risk of respiratory issues.
