Metrowest, MA – Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With the Following Tips

Do you understand the importance of improving indoor air quality?

Most people are of the view that they’re protected from air pollution once they get inside their homes. Unfortunately, that’s not true. The indoor air can be more polluted than the outdoor air, thanks to fire retardants and volatile released by conventional cleaners.Improving Ventilation

According to a Harvard Medical School Professor, Dr. Nicholas BuSaba, what’s even more alarming is that most of the substances that pollute the air are odorless, which makes it difficult to detect the problem in the first place. It’s only after you start experiencing symptoms like sleepiness and fatigue, digestive problems or respiratory issues that you suspect that something is wrong with the indoor air quality.

If you want to improve your home’s indoor air quality, here are some tips:

Controlling the Pollutants

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the best approach to improving the indoor air quality at home or workplace is to eliminate the individual sources of pollution or adjust them to reduce their emissions. Typical sources include gas stoves that can be controlled to release fewer pollutants and objects that consist of asbestos.

As compared to other solutions such as establishing better ventilation, this method of controlling a source is more cost-effective as it doesn’t involve the consumption of energy and seeks to address the problem before it develops and worsens.

Improving Ventilation

Staying warm inside the home during the winter may feel nice but the indoor heating systems and stale indoor air can prove dangerous for those sensitive to allergens or suffering from respiratory issues. To eliminate the dust mites, mold spores, and pet dander circulating around the house, it is important to allow the fresh outdoor air inside your home and regulate the airflow. Regardless of the season, allow fresh air to move into your home by opening windows from time to time.

Installing fans in the kitchen and washrooms is an effective way to push out potential air pollutants and cooking fumes out of the home and replacing it with fresh air from the outside.

Regular Cleaning

Cleaning your home helps maintain good indoor hygiene. To make sure that your cleaning efforts are effective, they must be regular and be focused on eliminating mold, dust on surfaces, and reducing animal dander. Use vacuum cleaners featuring HEPA filter to clean carpets at least twice a week. Replacing wall-to-wall carpeting with hard-surface flooring should also help reduce the accumulation of dust and dirt.

Similarly, look for items that attract allergens such as drapes and bedding and clean them thoroughly with 130 degrees Fahrenheit water if you have pets. Instead of using ordinary covers on pillows, mattresses and box springs, consider dust-mite proof options. While cleaning, also pay particular attention to clutter because that holds and traps dust.

If your home requires professional cleaning to remove mold, for instance, reach out to a reliable home restoration company like the Service Team of Professionals.
