How to Improve Indoor Air Quality in Your Home
Posted on December 27, 2019 by oozle
When thinking about poor air quality, many people usually only associate it with outdoor air. With Las Vegas being a big city that millions of people travel to, it’s no surprise that our city is ranked for having the worst air quality in the United States. You may assume that this won’t be a problem for you since you spend a lot of time indoors. Unfortunately, that’s not the case! The truth is that the air inside our homes, offices, and many other buildings can become polluted as well.
Living in a desert means that we’re often indoors trying to stay away from the scorching summers and cool nights and winters. That’s why it’s important that you do everything you can to make sure the air you breathe is as healthy as possible. Not sure what steps you should take to protect yourself and your family from experiencing poor air quality in your home? Read our blog for tips on how you improve your indoor air quality!
Keep Your Floors Clean
Dust, animal fur, and other harmful substances build up over time in your house. These things are not great for anyone to be breathing in, but they’re especially damaging to people with asthma, allergies, or any other condition that already makes it hard to breathe. To help combat these and improve your air quality, it’s important that you’re cleaning your floors on a regular basis. Vacuuming and mopping your floors is an easy way to get rid of the stuff you shouldn’t be breathing. Just don’t forget to clean the corners where a lot of hidden dust or animal fur can live.
Invest in a Air Purifier
Opening windows and doors help much-needed air circulate through your living space. Although it helps your indoor air quality, we understand that you don’t want to spend all winter huddled indoors with the frigid air coming in your home. That’s why an air purifier is a great way to help manage your indoor air quality and ensure that your allergies stay under control. Put an air purifier in the most commonly used areas of the house to make sure that you’re getting the most out of it. This can also help give your skin moisture and avoid the dry and cracked skin that comes from poor air quality.
Replace Your Heat Filters
Just because Las Vegas is known for its hot temperatures doesn’t mean that we don’t get our fair share of the cold. During the winter, the temperature can drop significantly meaning that it’s time for the heaters to turn on! Since we’re not typically used to the cold, you might be tempted to turn the heater on without worrying about making sure it’s properly maintained. This is a big oversight because the lack of care to your heater can contribute to your poor air quality! Throughout the year and especially during the winter when you’re using it, make sure to regularly change the filter on your heater. Doing this helps your heater stay clean which is a big factor in maintaining healthy air quality in your home.
