When’s the last time you thought about the air quality in your home? Can’t remember? Well, maybe you should be thinking about it more often. Surprisingly, the air quality inside is sometimes worse than the air quality outside.
Low air quality in your home can have adverse effects on your health – it could cause asthma, fatigue and even lung disease. There is always room for improvement, and it is essential that you ensure that your indoor air quality is at its best.
Luckily, the air conditioning experts at Air Boca have provided you with simple ways to improve your indoor air quality!
Change your HVAC Filter
Replacing your HVAC filter regularly will not only maintain a healthy environment for you and your family – doing so also supports the health of your AC system. An AC system that is taken care of will run more efficiently.
Cleaning regularly eliminates dust, dirt and other allergens that can build up in your home over time. Make sure that you polish every spot, even those not obvious to the eye – like the top of your ceiling fan.
Use Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products
Industrial cleaners often time leave a toxic residue behind. Use non-toxic and unscented products to avoid these harmful fumes. Lemon and vinegar are two good options for all natural cleaning remedies!
Open the Windows to Let in Fresh Air
Air circulation allows for the replacement of toxins with fresh air. Avoid opening windows in extremely humid temperatures because this will let moisture in and can cause mold to grow in your home. Palm Beach County can be a victim of the extremely humid climate, especially with the rainy season underway.
Plants, believe it or not, are nature’s air cleaning agents. Bamboo Palm, English Ivy, and Gerbera Daisy are just a few of the top plants to improve air quality in your home while providing additional oxygen.
Bathe and Groom Your Pets
Animal fur and dander can spread across your entire home in minutes. Regular bathing and grooming can help reduce the shedding and dirt that an animal can bring into your home.
Remove Your Shoes
Shoes bring everything that is undesirable on the floor into your home. Taking off and leaving shoes outside of the entrance will eliminate dirt, dust and other harmful toxins from crossing your front door.
