How To Enhance Your House’s Air Quality
There’s a lot in the news about the air quality that we breathe, it can be a little scary. Between greenhouse gasses, making emissions, and nature contributions, there’s a great deal of yucky stuff out there in the air. While you can’t directly control what’s in the air on the outside of your home, you can do a few things to make your home’s air much safer for you and your household. Here are some things to consider.
All of your house’s air is controlled throughout your home by means of the heating and cooling ducts. Your heater filter does a terrific job of capturing a lot of the irritants and pollutants if it’s maintained correctly. It’s a great idea swap out the filter every month or two to make sure you are breathing clean air.
You want to make certain that your home is sealed firmly, securing it from the outside air. Have a look at doors and windows to see if there is any air leaking through. Attics and basements are well-known for letting air in. Caulking, weather-stripping, and even including insulation will decrease the quantity of outdoor air that is getting in.
Bathing Your Furry Friend
Your family pet’s fur will also bring in all kinds of things, from dust to dander to termites. And, all of that will enter into your house’s air quality. Bathing them regularly and brushing them every day, preferably outside, will assist a lot.
The more things that are laying around and on shelves, the more locations there are for the dust and allergens to settle. Decreasing mess will not just make your home simpler to clean up, it will improve your air quality.Dust Magnets
Everything floating through the air will eventually settle someplace. However, it won’t remain there. As you and your household move your house, all of that dust gets recirculated back into the air. It’s a vicious cycle! Here are a few locations to look at:
- Curtains and blinds: Get in the routine of cleaning your drapes and blinds on a regular basis. They’re just another place where contaminants can settle and return into the air.
- Bed linens are just somewhere else that will gather dust. Changing your sheets typically will assist, in addition to changing out your comforter frequently.
- Floors: It’s the last place that the dust will land, and the first place where it will be kicked up back into the air. Difficult floorings ought to be kept clean, specifically in the corners and along the baseboards. And, vacuuming carpets often, in some cases daily, is a must.
- Laundry: Letting laundry accumulate till laundry day isn’t the very best way to keep your house clean. Dust is settling all over, just waiting to return into the air. It’s better to do a load of laundry every day, getting rid of any stacks of clothing that can attract pollutants.
- Clean from top to bottom: When you’re cleaning up clean starting at the top. Dust the ceilings, then work on your photos and shelves on the walls, and finally work on the floors last.
Despite how well you vacuum you carpets, you won’t be able to get them totally clean. You can attempt to clean them by yourself, which will help a little.

We are so pleased with the service that we received from Advanced Carpet Cleaning. Our carpets look amazing and the gentlemen providing the service were very kind and professional. They were able to remove all stains and carefully moved furniture when needed. Their level of customer service was outstanding!BuBbly Toes .6/26/2016
Gary literally came to my rescue!! Another cleaner cancelled on me on the morning of the scheduled cleaning and I had to do a walk-through with our landlord that same day. I called Advanced, spoke to Gary and he squeezed me into his schedule. He arrived when he said he would, and the carpets were cleaned in plenty of time to do the walk-through. Gary did an amazing job!! The carpets came cleaner than I expected them to, and he even helped me out with a couple of spots on the linoleum in the kitchen without my asking! I will definitely use Advanced in the future and will highly recommend them to anyone!A Google User6/26/2018
I can’t recommend Advanced Carpet Care enough. Their work is excellent and the prices are great too. They came with 2 men, which speeds things up. They also moved all my furniture out of the way so they could clean all the carpet. I typically have seen other companies just go around obstacles but these guys actually move stuff so they can be thorough. After they left, the carpets looked like new and smelled fresh.We have been putting off carpet cleaning because of the chemicals, but these guys use GREEN non-toxic solutions and they still leave you with really clean carpets! If they need a little more cleaning power they can use a mild detergent that is still very earth friendly.Lastly, they are a local business, and I prefer giving my money to the smaller service-minded business over a large corporation.WhiteRose6/26/2015
Just wanted you to know what a GREAT job your men did on cleaning our carpet last week! This was the first time I tried your company and I was thoroughly impressed. Your men came in and asked if there were any stains that they needed to pre-treat. They gave special attention to those areas, getting them to look just like new!I would highly recommend your company! And your employees were extremely professional.A Google User6/26/2016
