Improving indoor air quality (IAQ) will make your household healthier, reduce allergens and airborne contaminants, and even minimize dust buildup. Follow these easy IAQ tips for cleaner air in your Henderson, NV, home.
1. Vacuum Regularly
If your home has carpeting, regular vacuuming is essential. You want to aim for once or twice a week using a vacuum that has a HEPA filter. You might need to do it more depending on the number of people who live in your home. Have pets that shed? You may need to double your efforts to keep dander to a minimum.
2. Discourage Smoking in the House
Smoking is one of the worst things you can do to your body, and can result in not only lung cancer, but a number of other ailments. It can also have a negative impact on your indoor air quality. It doesn’t matter if a member of your household smokes outside on occasion, the risk still remains of bringing those harmful chemicals indoors.
3. Install IAQ Products
According to Dr. Nicholas BuSaba, an associate professor of otolaryngology at Harvard Medical School, most of the things that cause IAQ problems are odorless. What does that mean? There’s not much to alert you to a potential air quality issue. That’s why it’s important to be proactive when keeping your home’s indoor air as contaminant-free as possible. One of the best ways to do this is to install IAQ products that clean and purify the air. Some examples include:
- Air scrubbers
- Air purifiers
- Air cleaners
Working closely with a team of IAQ experts who understand today’s modern technology is essential to ensuring you receive the right products for your needs. With so many options to choose from, do your research and choose one that meets your goals and fits your budget.
