Previously, we’ve talked about the common factors that muddy up the air quality of the inside of your house. In this second blog of our two-part series, Lone Star Comfortaire, your leading AC repair company, discusses three ways to maintain good indoor air quality.
Keep the Floors Clean
There are accumulated chemicals and allergens on your floor, mostly in the form of household dust. That is why keeping your floors fresh is essential for achieving quality indoor air. You can use a HEPA filter vacuum unit to sweep these contaminants up. You can also mop the floor and corner sections with microfiber mops, which allows you to remove more dirt than a regular mop. In addition, always have a large floor mat at every doorstep to reduce the amount of dust and stains you’d track into your home.
Maintain Humidity Levels
Moisture allows the development of mold, but keeping the humidity levels of your home down could greatly reduce its formation. Simply ventilating your home is enough, but if that’s not possible, a dehumidifier is helpful in controlling allergens and the moisture in indoor air. You should consult with trusted heating contractors in developing the right method of humidity maintenance for your home.
Produce Natural Fragrance
It is better to keep your home fresh with a natural fragrance rather than with the usual citrus and lemony smell from cleaning sprays. If you wish to have a pleasant smelling home without the danger of VOCs or volatile organic compounds from some cleaning agents, you should look for fragrance free or naturally scented cleaning products.
You can also control the aroma inside your home by bringing the outdoors inside by using potted plants as home decor.
