If you’re worried about the quality of the air you and your family are breathing, there are a number of things you can do around the house to help your family breathe more easily. Use these tips to improve the air quality in your home.
Vacuum on a Regular Basis
Neglecting chores around your house can affect the quality of the air you breathe. If you don’t vacuum regularly, dust and other particles will start to fill the air in your home, leading to respiratory issues, coughing, and wheezing. Break out the vacuum and keep all those hard-to-reach areas clean.
Keep Air Vents and Filters Clean
All those ducts around your home can fill up with dust and dirt, limiting the airflow around your home. Make sure you regularly wipe off the air vents around your home with a simple cloth to maximize the airflow. You should also clean or replace the air filter in your HVAC system every few months to keep dust and other particles out of the air.
Make Sure Fireplaces Are Properly Vented
Fireplaces are always full of harsh dust and ash. If you want to keep these particles out of the air, make sure your fireplace and chimney are clean and properly ventilated. We usually recommend doing a chimney sweep every year to ensure it’s clean and functioning properly.
Maintain Proper Humidity Levels
Most homes should have a humidity level of 30 to 50 percent. Too much humidity can lead to the spread of mold and other allergens. Invest in a humidity meter or a dehumidifier to keep your home at the proper level.
