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.

Air Filters

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.

Weather proofing

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.

Decluttering

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. But, having them expertly cleaned is truly the best alternative to get everything out of the fibers.

  • I have been using Gary and the guys at Advanced Carpet Cleaning for over 20 years now and just wanted to say Thanks so much for a fantastic job once again! I had a couple of spills this time that I never thought would come out. Of course, Gary got them out and the carpets look great! Gary and his team are friendly, efficient and always do a wonderful job! I would highly recommend them!

    I can't recommend Advanced Carpet Care enough. Their work is excellent and the prices are great too. They came with 2 workers, which really speeds things up. They also helped move all my furniture out of the way so they could clean as much carpet as possible. I typically see carpet cleaners just go around obstacles, but these guys actually move stuff so they can be very thorough. After they left, the carpet looked like new and smelled fresh. We've been putting off a carpet cleaning because of the chemicals, but these guys can use non-toxic solutions and still leave you with really clean carpet. If you 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 businesses over a huge corporation.

  • Very professional, thorough, and courteous. This is the ONLY company we utilize when we have any flooring or furniture cleaning needs. They do an exceptional job and are very cautious while doing their work to take care of and be cautious of the surroundings while doing so. Not just rush in and out and throw a bill at you. Highly recommended.
