Five Steps to Better Indoor Air Quality

Dec 13 ,2013

Better Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality

If you suffer from allergies or persistent respiratory problems, improving your indoor air quality will go a long way toward helping you feel better. There are several things you can do on your own as well as services that our team at Northern’s One Hour provides that can help you breathe easier.

1. Clean Your Ducts

Your HVAC system circulates air through your home to keep you and your family in comfortable temperatures. However, if those ducts are dusty, you will be breathing in those particles – along with mold and mildew. Call an indoor air quality specialist who can give your system a good scrub.

2. Clean Your Floors

The gunk building up in your carpet or on your hardwood is affecting your quality of air.  Chemicals and allergens can accumulate in household dust. Use a vacuum and mop regularly, and keep mats at every door to reduce the amount of dirt that gets tracked into your house.

3. Use Natural Products

The chemicals you spray on your bathroom counter or in your kitchen may clean up messes, but they leave traces of toxins throughout your home. Look for products that are natural or plant-based to reduce the amount of gunk floating in your air.

4. Adjust Your Humidity

Dust mites and mold love moisture, so keeping the humidity in your home to around 30 to 50 percent can keep these air pollutants under control. Reduce moisture in your home by using a dehumidifier and exhaust fans.

5. No Smoking

Make your home a smoke-free zone, as cigarette smoke contains thousands of chemicals.

Call the Minneapolis air quality experts, and breathe easier. Our staff at Northern’s One Hour can help you clean your ducts and give you other tips for improving your indoor air quality. Call us today at 763-412-1197.
