Vacuuming carpet to improve air quality

How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Stagnant air inside your home could be unhealthy. The EPA has conducted studies and concluded that indoor air can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. It would be nice if every day was the kind of day where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Rocky Mount you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at Davis Heating & Air Conditioning has some tips to improve your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

If you haven’t already, consider investing in a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It’s shocking what an improvement a quality vacuum can make on your home’s indoor air quality. Using a quality vacuum once a week will work to battle allergens and dust that collects in your carpets and furniture.

Of course your vacuum can’t pick up everything, but it’s a good place to start. If you have someone in your home that is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to look into a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for your indoor air quality needs. It fights 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 you may recall from science class, plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also battle harmful toxins contained within your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.

If you’re looking into adding some foliage to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study identified the best plants for such an important task. If you have any furry family members, double-check and make sure any plants you bring into to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to snack on them.

Ventilate Your Home

In an effort to make homes more energy-efficient, today’s homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is incredible for energy-efficiency, the lack of ventilation can generate a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned earlier, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer a wide range of ventilation solutions to enhance your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
