“Improve Your Home’s Air Quality”

Did you know that the air quality inside of your home is probably worse than the air outside of your home?

That’s right…

We’re all aware of pollution, but many of us are unaware that the air we breathe inside can often make us sick and cause allergic reactions..

So, how can you evaluate the air quality inside of your home?

If the air seems stuffy, if there are bad odors, if there is excessive moisture, or if you notice mold or mildew, chances are you have some issues with air quality.

Luckily, there are simple things you can do to ensure that you and the other occupants in your home breathe easier…. and better.

Make sure there’s plenty of ventilation and circulation in your home.

Open the windows and, if necessary, install fans. Many of today’s homes are built airtight, so the key to good indoor air quality is to get air both in and out of the home.

Check for mold and mildew.

Mold and mildew indicate moisture, and can cause allergic reactions and various minor health illnesses.

Start by removing mold and mildew with a bleach solution, and then handle the moisture in the air by installing a dehumidfier. Crack the windows in rooms that are susceptible to excessive moisture, such as bathrooms, and turn on a fan to move air around.

Install air purifiers.

If you just have a problem room or two, there are smaller desktop models that are relatively inexpensive and do a good job. If you suffer from extensive air quality issues in your home, you may want to install a heavy-duty whole-home system.

Get plenty of air after installing new furniture and cabinetry.

New furniture and cabinetry are often treated with chemicals like formaldehyde that emit dangerous gasses. Most of these gasses burn off within a couple of days. During the first few days after installing these items in your home, keep the windows open and fresh air circulating.

Call us to make sure your carpet isn’t harboring any bad or unhealthy substances.

Animal dander, dust mites, and other dirt and debris that affect air quality burrow deep down into your carpet, and cause irritation, illness, and allergies. Let us take care of that for you with a good, thorough cleaning.
