6 Ways To Improve Air Quality In Your Home or Office

October 14, 2021 Lifestyle News No Comments

Stuck in your home or office all day? Worried about air quality, not just for you but also for your family and colleagues? Don’t panic! With a little preventative maintenance and some basic knowledge, you can take immediate steps to improve your indoor air quality.

It’s more common than you think. Air pollutants range from outdoor contaminants to mould build-up in your kitchens and bathrooms. Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean the contaminants are not there.

Yes, sure, if there’s a mouldy smell in the bathroom then that’s a clear sign. But the signs might not always be so obvious. Here’s 6 things you can do right away to improve the air quality in your home:

1. Open the windows!

It sounds obvious but if you can, open your doors and windows! Poor ventilation is a major cause of bad air quality. Let’s say it together: good air flow is the beginning and end of a better path to ventilation.

2. Change your AC filter.

Air-conditioning systems are always working to give your home that perfect temperature. But while they’re cycling through all that air, they’re filtering out some of those common air pollutants. Eventually, their air filters fill up and stop doing their job. Get your AC cleaned by a professional company.

3. Don’t forget about other air filters.

Your AC filter isn’t the only thing working to keep the air clean in your home. If you really want to improve the air quality in your home, be sure to check the filters in your other household appliances. Your vacuum cleaner, clothes dryer and kitchen vents should all be inspected and maintained periodically. It’s recommended to clean or replace these common household filters every few months.

4. Check your air ducts.

Air ducts are responsible for distributing air throughout your home, providing a comfortable climate in every room. But ducts that are not installed properly or maintained can distribute contaminants from one room to another. Over time, dust, dirt and even mould can accumulate in your ducts, reducing the overall air quality. Hire a professional to make sure your ducts are circulating fresh, clean air.

5. Sanitize your home for Covid.

A clean home/office is essential for good air quality. Engage a professional sanitization company to undertake a deep clean of your entire house, office or apartment. Some sanitization and duct cleaning firms – like Duct Doctors – offer a free consultation and assessment of your living and working spaces.

6. Control humidity in your home.

Humid and moist conditions breed mould and mildew that can trigger respiratory issues like allergies and asthma. Depending on your location, the hot summer months can bring about especially humid conditions. Reduce the amount of moisture in the air and curb the growth of irritating moulds with a few well-placed dehumidifiers. There are a variety of humidifier options that will help maintain consistent humidity levels and create comfortable living/working conditions in your home or office.

Need help?

Keeping the air in your home/office pure and breathable requires diligence and preventative maintenance. Now that you’ve learned a few simple steps you can do yourself to reduce indoor air pollution, consider setting up an appointment for a free duct health check with a professional.
