How You Can Improve Your Home’s Air Quality
During the peak summer months in St. Louis, many people spend more time indoors in the air conditioning trying to stay cool. This puts an emphasis on the cleanliness and purity of the air inside of your home. Fresh off the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are much more concerned with air quality to keep themselves safe and free from infection. There are basic steps that can be taken to keep the air in your home clean, but the experts always recommend the best. We’ll take a look at some of the things you should be doing and then let you know what you should let us do to have the purest, cleanest air you’ve ever had inside of your home.
Clean Air Basics
There are plenty of steps you can take yourself inside of your home to work toward having clean air before you call the professionals. We’ll highlight some of these below:
- Keep Your House Clean – This is one of the most basic steps to keeping the best and cleanest air in your home. Removing dust, dirt, and debris from surfaces in your home make a big difference in air quality. Dust regularly, vacuum 1-2 times per week, and clean all other surfaces that can accumulate dirt and dust.
- Minimize Plants Inside Your Home – Some plants do produce oxygen and help air quality, but they also create and grow mold that reduces the air quality in your home.
- Replace Your Air Filter – Having a good air filter makes sure your system is catching dust and debris that would get into your home. The filter should be changed every 3 months and is one of the best ways to preserve the life you have left from your residential air conditioning system.
- Control Your Home’s Humidity – Dust mites, mold, and allergens grow in humid environments. All of these drastically decrease air quality and produce harmful pollutants in your air. Consider opening windows sometimes and circulate fresh air through your home.
- Keep Air Ducts Clean – Dust and debris can block air from moving your system efficiently.
- Use Vent Fans When Cooking – Reduce what gets into your air from cooking by venting your cooking area.
