Vacuuming carpet to improve air quality

How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Stagnant air inside your home could be harmful. 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 a dream to always have the kind of weather where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in South Beloit and Belvidere you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. has some tips to enhance your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

If you haven’t already, look into buying a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It is surprising the improvement a quality vacuum can make on your home’s indoor air quality. Vacuuming once a week with a quality vacuum will work to combat allergens and dust that collects in your carpets and furniture.

Of course your vacuum can’t pick up everything, but it’s a wonderful place to start. If you have someone in your home that is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to consider a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for improving your indoor air quality. It eradicates all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. All of these things have been found to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.

Get Help from Mother Nature

Mother nature would be happy to help you purify your air in a natural way. As we all learned in science class, plants consume carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also battle harmful toxins within your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.

If you’d like to enlist some plant life to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study determined the best plants for such an important task. If you have any furry family members, double-check and make sure any plants you add to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to try a bite.

Ventilate Your Home

In order to make homes more energy-efficient, contemporary homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is awesome for energy-efficiency, the lack of ventilation can generate a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we all know, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer many ventilation solutions to enhance your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
