How to Keep Your Indoor Air Fresh & Pure

Unique Ways to Clean and Sanitize Your Indoor Air

The quality of air in your home may have some health effects on your family. Several health practitioners have proved that the quality of indoor air may be even worse than the outdoor air in most cases.

In almost every room in your home, there is a potential source that may pollute the air. As a homeowner, you should not be worried because there are easy, cost-effective and reliable solutions that would improve the quality of air circulation in your home.

Steps to improve indoor air quality.

Addition of ventilation systems in your home: Opening of windows is not a solution since during winter they are almost shut completely. In this case, it’s necessary to use trickle ventilation with additional filters to allow fresh air to enter the house while escorting indoor air pollutants out.

Install your house with AC systems: Use of air conditioners in the summer is almost inevitable to any homeowner. Some pollutants found in your house are water-soluble, and air conditioners are perfect in removing water particles from the atmosphere.

Installing high-efficiency particulate air filter: You can improve the efficiency of your air conditioner by using a HEPA filter. This is a perfect product for cleaning indoor air in a single room. When you want to improve the quality of air in your house, it necessary to consult HVAC experts in your area.

Eliminate irritating gas from your house.

Depending on the appliance you use in your kitchen, you should always hire a technician to service them regularly. Whether it is a propane stove or natural gas, the jets are supposed to be cleaned and meter adjusted appropriately to ensure the gas burns as required.

Also, make sure windows in the kitchen are opened or turn on the fan hood when using stove because it emits nitrogen dioxide which is dangerous when combined with sunlight.

Choose the right products for cleaning your house.

Some cleaning products especially those manufactured using ammonia and chlorine, contain certain levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These compounds are released to the air when the products are used.

You should use products containing low VOC level or those without it, in order to improve the quality of indoor air in your house.

Also, some paints are known to contain this compound and should be avoided when painting in your house.

It is crucial to seek professional advice from HVAC experts. They’ll propose the best techniques to use in order to improve the quality of air in your home depending on your needs.
