Simple Ways You Can Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Everybody wants to breathe clean air! If you have an indoor air quality problem at your home, it can sometimes be difficult to determine what the problem is, and then apply the best solution. The reality is that having great indoor air quality doesn’t have to be complicated, and there are some basic things you can do to keep it fresh and healthy throughout the year.

  • Replace Your Air Filters – This is one easy thing you can do to keep your indoor air clean and safe for breathing. The trick is that you’ll need to follow the recommended filter guidelines for changing them to achieve the best results. Your air filters should be changed at least every three months, and more often during certain seasons, like spring when the pollen count is high.
  • Control Humidity – Another simple thing that affects your indoor air quality is the humidity in the room. Running a dehumidifier during the wet summer and fall, and a humidifier during the dry winter and spring, can go a long way toward improving your indoor air quality for your entire household.
  • Seasonal Cleaning – Your indoor air quality is easily affected by the dust, pollen, dirt, and pet dander that collects in the corners of your home and on top of your belongings. Whether you take on the task of seasonal cleaning yourself, or you hire someone to help with this important chore, you are sure to see improvements in your indoor air quality throughout the year.
