Maintaining good IAQ is one of the most important factors in living a long and happy life. Consistently being exposed to poor indoor air quality can have a number of negative impacts on one’s health, some of which can only be felt once the damage has been done.
That’s why it’s important that homeowners do everything they can to ensure that the air inside of their homes is clean and free of microscopic particles that could eventually lead to something as serious as lung disease.
Fortunately, the air experts here at Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning are here to help provide you with the information you need to ensure healthy habits for your home. Whether it’s simple tricks for controlling dust or providing the annual maintenance your HVAC system needs to continue running at optimal efficiency year after year, we’ve been providing the highest quality Meridian IAQ solutions for over 50 years — and we don’t plan on stopping any time soon.
5 Good Habits For Consistent Indoor Air Quality
Leave Your Shoes At The Door!
It’s often overlooked, but it’s an unfortunate fact that we track a lot of things indoors with our shoes. One of the best ways we can stop a lot of outdoor contaminants from entering our homes is by removing our shoes before they ever have the opportunity to track the microscopic particles inside. This small step — terrible pun intended — will help both your air and floors stay clean.
Brush & Groom Your Pets
Another one of the biggest contributors to less-than-ideal indoor air quality is, unfortunately, our pets. The fur, oil and dander they shed is easily carried in the air and can agitate the lungs of people with allergies or asthma. The easiest and most helpful way to control this is by targeting the source and making sure that your pet is regularly brushed and groomed.
Clean Curtains & Drapes Regularly
Another contributor to bad air quality is the curtains and drapes that are often overlooked in our weekly cleaning process. These and other fabric surfaces in our homes have a bad habit of accumulating dust and debris that can be easily re-released into the air.
It’s important that your drapes and curtains be dusted or cleaned at least once a month to avoid problematic accumulations of dust.
Similar to the curtains and drapes of your homes, your carpet represents a piece of fabric with a large surface area where dust and dirt can accumulate to be knocked into the air later. This makes vacuuming essential if you are trying to be diligent about maintaining good indoor air quality.
One of the easiest and most effective things anyone can do to improve the air quality in their home is to increase the airflow. Weather permitting, an open window, cracked door or even a strategically located ventilation fan can do a lot to eliminate particles that would otherwise be trapped inside where they can potentially reach your lungs.
