Have you wondered what more you can do to improve your home’s air quality? Not only does air quality affect the comfort of your home, it can mean the difference between a healthy and a hazardous home. The problem with indoor environments is, they’re really good at trapping allergens. Unlike the outdoors, there’s no wind or elements to move these allergens, and instead, they end up building up until someone cleans them up. Additionally, your home is the perfect breeding ground for dust mites who actually feed on human skin! Without taking steps to improve your home’s air quality, you’ll be breathing these allergens in. In this blog, we’re going to talk about several things you can do to keep your home’s air quality as good as possible so that you and your family can feel safe.

Clean regularly

Simply cleaning your home regularly will significantly improve your home’s air quality. It’s important to make sure you cover every aspect of cleaning like vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, and more. When cleaning, try to prevent knocking dust and allergens up into the air, otherwise, you’ll need to clean that area again. It can be difficult to see allergens on the floor, furniture, or walls, so just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there!

Open your windows  

Circulation is really important for maintaining your home’s air quality. One of the reasons indoor air quality can be such an issue is that dust particles can build up over time and when someone walks on it, it’s kicked up and people breathe it in. Opening your windows every once in a while will help circulate the air preventing dust from building up and getting some fresh air inside your home.

Manage humidity

Humidity is another major factor in your home’s air quality. One mistake many people make is after taking a shower, they don’t allow the bathroom to dry out, causing mold, mildew, and bacteria to form and reduce your overall air quality. You should try to keep your home between 30-50% humidity levels in order to prevent growth of mold and mildew. You can do this by properly ventilating your rooms or putting a dehumidifier in rooms with high humidity.
