Tips to increase your indoor air quality

October 2018

These days, folks know that clean air is an essential ingredient for your personal health. Repeated exposure to poor indoor air quality can increase your chances of getting sick, can cause headaches and other unpleasant experiences and can even effect your mood.

With Americans spending 90% of their time in a building of some sort, it’s important that you do what you can to improve the overall quality of the air your breathe. That’s what we’re here to talk about today. Here are some tips you can use to help improve the overall quality of their air you breathe in your home or workplace.

Let’s jump right in!

Replace your air filters

Dirty air filters are among our most ‘usual suspects’ for poor air quality. This occurs largely because people simply forget to change them regularly. While we recommend that you change them every month, you can get away with every 2-3 months and it’s a super easy, DIY fix.

Clean your ducts

When ducts are clean and sealed, they’ll do their job and deliver fresh air. Making sure they stay that way is important – and why having an ongoing monthly maintenance plan is a good idea. Ducts can get mouldy, they can experience leaks and the like. By having someone checking in on them with regularity – you’re ensuring that you’re getting ahead of problems before they become actual issues.

Use plants

House-plants not only up the aesthetic appeal of your space, they can also filter and clean the air in your home. Ivy’s, bamboo palms, Daisy’s and more can dramatically improve the overall air quality of their immediate surroundings.

Shoes at the door

This one might seem kind of silly, but shoes should always be left at the front door. You can track in all sorts of nastiness in the house with you – dirt, debris, germs, faeces, dander, pollen and the like. And when you walk around your house in your shoes, it gets in your carpets and the like, doing a number on your air quality. Be sure everyone keeps their shoes on a shoe rack and doesn’t go trampling through the house in them.

If you’re not feeling so good and think the air quality in your home or workplace might be the culprit, give us a shout to day and we can provide you with a free consultation. Good luck!
