How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Stagnant air inside your home could be harmful. The EPA has conducted studies and concluded that the air inside your home can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. We wish the weather were always nice enough that you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Middle Georgia you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at Air Concepts of Middle Georgia has some tips to boost your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

If you haven’t already, look into buying a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It’s shocking the improvement a quality vacuum can make on your home’s indoor air quality. Using a quality vacuum each week will work to fight off allergens and dust that collects in your carpets and furniture.

Of course your vacuum can’t pick up everything, but it’s a wonderful place to start. If you have someone in your home that is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to think about getting a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for enhancing your indoor air quality. It eradicates all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. These are the pollutants known to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.

Get Help from Mother Nature

Let mother nature lend you a hand and purify your air in a natural way. As we all learned in science class, plants consume carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also fight off dangerous toxins contained within your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.

If you’d like to enlist some plant life to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study figured out the ideal plants for such an important task. If you have any furry friends, double-check and make sure any plants you introduce to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to snack on them.

Ventilate Your Home

In working to make homes more energy-efficient, contemporary homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is amazing for energy-efficiency, the lack of ventilation can create a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we all know, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer many ventilation solutions to enhance your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
