Improving Your Home's Air Quality

Home's Air QualityWhen was the last time you replaced or cleaned your furnace filter? Depending on the size of your home and household, this type of furnace maintenance should be done every 1 to 3 months to promote good air quality. In addition to keeping up with furnace maintenance in Columbus, OH, there are other steps that you can take to help keep your indoor air clean and healthy.

Vacuum Regularly

When allowed to accumulate along with the dust in your home, allergens and chemicals can affect your indoor air quality for decades. For this reason, you should keep dust in check to help maintain clean indoor air. To do this, vacuum frequently using a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter, rotating brushes, and strong suction. To achieve the best results, vacuum twice per week and remember to clean anywhere dust accumulates. Use a mop to clean up any of the dust that gets left behind and place a floor mat at your home’s entrances to help collect dirt and pollutants that might otherwise get tracked indoors.

Quit Smoking

If someone in your family has a smoking habit, then stopping altogether is a smart way to improve his or her health. If this isn’t an option, then consider making the inside of your home a no smoking zone. Secondhand cigarette smoke is a major component of indoor air pollution, and research shows that exposure to secondhand smoke can increase a child’s risk of developing cancer, SIDS, asthma, ear infections, and respiratory infections.

Maintain Humidity

It’s not uncommon for homeowners to underestimate the role that humidity levels play in indoor air quality. If the humidity in your home is too high, then this can create an environment in which mold and dust mites thrive. However, you also want to avoid letting indoor humidity get too low. Experts advise keeping humidity levels between 30% and 50%. If yours is too low, then consider using a humidifier. If your humidity is too high, then a dehumidifier can reduce the amount of moisture in your home to help control indoor air pollutants.
