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 moldy, 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, but 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.
