While many people are concerned about outdoor air quality, we often forget that the air inside our homes can become poor in quality as well. If you have had issues with mold spores, debris or allergens in your air, your health can suffer. With many of us spending more time at home than we may have in the past, it is critical that we make our homes safe, healthy places to be. Here are a few tips for improving your indoor air quality:
- Change your air filter regularly – It is important that your air conditioning filter is changed out about every 1 to 2 months for optimal air quality. You likely have other filters as well that should be cleaned or switched out regularly, such as vacuum filters, clothes dryer filters, and other household appliance filters.
- Keep carpets clean – Your carpets can act as a trap for many of the particles that negatively impact your air. Frequent vacuuming and regular cleaning are important for your home’s air quality.
- Bring in some green – Plants are very effective cleaning our air, outdoors and in. A few ferns or small indoor trees can not only beautify your home, but can also provide you with better quality air.
- Control moisture – In the Southeast, we get a lot of humidity. This can be hazardous for homes with crawlspaces where moisture intrusion can cause big problems, including mold and mildew growth. At Turners Underseal, we offer a reliable service to keep your crawlspace dry and clean. We provide a superior form of indoor air quality and moisture control than other services such as crawlspace encapsulation.
