With spring on its way, we’re all thinking about spring cleaning, right? What about cleaning the air inside of your home? Indoor air quality can be worse than the air outside, especially if you have allergies, asthma, or other breathing difficulties. Here are several ways you can help clean the air in your home, and keep everyone inside breathing easier.
Regular Dusting and Vacuuming
Spring cleaning usually includes dusting and cleaning the surfaces that are more easily seen in your home. Doing this frequently can go a long way in reducing the allergens and other pollutants in your home’s air.
Have Your Ducts Cleaned
The ductwork in your home can hold much of your home’s dust and allergens that aren’t so easily seen. Having a duct cleaning every five years, or if you have just moved into a “new-to-you” home, can make a huge difference in your home’s air quality.
Change Your Filter
Changing the filter in your furnace is never a bad idea, no matter the time of year. However, a regular filter isn’t always going to do much when it comes to actually cleaning the air in your home. Investing in a more advanced filter, such as our Perfect Air Plus, or an electronic air cleaner, can pull a much larger amount of pollutants out of the air.
Add a UV Light Purifier
A low-maintenance addition to most homes, UV lights can help to treat the air in your entire home by destroying even the smallest particles of dust and bacteria in your ductwork in order to reduce allergens and illnesses.
