Improve Air Quality in Your Home

Did you know that the air quality inside your home can be up to five times worse than the air quality outside? That’s why it’s important to take steps to ensure the air you breathe is as clean and healthy as possible. Here are some tried-and-true ways to improve the air quality in your home.

Clean your Home Regularly

The most obvious way to keep the air in your home free of dust, dirt, and allergens is by cleaning regularly. Vacuum carpets at least once a week, wipe down countertops and other surfaces frequently, and give tile floors an extra cleaning with a mop. Not only will this help reduce airborne particles, but it will also reduce dust mite populations in your home which can cause respiratory issues. Replace your air filters regularly to ensure your HVAC system is performing the way it should! All of these tips will help you breathe easy in your home.

Install an Air Purifier

Air purifiers work by filtering out particulates from the air using a fan and filter system. You can buy portable models for individual rooms or install central systems for whole-house filtration that can remove up to 99% of pollutants from the air in your home. Make sure you replace filters regularly according to manufacturer instructions; if they become clogged with dirt and debris they won’t do their job effectively anymore! 


Check Humidity Levels

Keeping humidity levels between 30-50% will help prevent mold growth which is another source of indoor pollutants. If there is too much humidity in your home, invest in a dehumidifier or open windows on dry days to let excess moisture evaporate out of your house naturally. 

Improving air quality in your home does require some effort but it’s worth it for healthier indoor living! By following these simple tips for regular cleaning and maintenance, you can ensure that the air inside your house is just as good (if not better) than what’s outside so everyone can breathe easier!
