Staying at home as much as you can doesn’t necessarily shield you from the dangers of being exposed to the polluted air outdoors. The air inside your home may be just as riddled with contaminants as the air outside. You need to properly air condition your interior to maintain good air quality, especially if you have health concerns.
Improve the condition of your doors and windows to enhance ventilation naturally. Instead of keeping them closed to avoid too much heat from coming in during warmer months, keep them open and install shades or blinds to help block the heat instead. Have your roof vents checked to ensure that they are working correctly and keeping your home free of moisture damage of any sort. Air quality can deteriorate quickly if mold growth is left unchecked.
Regular HVAC Maintenance
Make sure your heating and cooling systems are properly maintained and regularly cleaned. Have filters changed out too. Install air purifiers and dehumidifiers, particularly in rooms where ventilation is not great, such as basement bedrooms. In cases when air conditioning repair is needed, work with professionals you can trust.
Keep a Clean Home
Dust filled rooms are the least of your worries. Your home may also be filled with allergens and harmful chemicals. Keep your home clean at all times. Mind your cleaning products, as they may actually be making your air quality worse and putting your health at risk. Use natural cleaning alternatives whenever possible.
