If you notice a great amount of dust around your home, then you might have a problem with the air quality. I’ve had these issues in the past. Even after spending weeks of cleaning the house from top to bottom, I still had dust lingering on all of the surfaces. Poor air quality can affect more than just the overall atmosphere in your home. The indoor air quality affects your home, your health, and your family. The best defense to improving the air quality, is just maintaining a clean home. Regular cleaning, sweeping, and mopping will alleviate a lot of the excess dust and allergens. I’ve found a simple way to keeping excess dirt out of the home, a floor mat at the entrance. Another thing you can do to control the air quality, is maintaining a level of healthy humidity in the home. With levels between 30-40% humidity, most allergens and dust mites won’t survive. A home humidifier or dehumidifier can help to maintain healthy levels of moisture also. You can improve the indoor air quality, by performing regular maintenance on the HVAC system. The air filter should be changed every month, or more frequently if you have pets or smokers. Most air filters are disposable, and can be bought from any hardware store or home supercenter. Some air filters can be reused and cleaned. If you take care of your home HVAC system properly, then you should have no issues with the indoor air quality in your home.
