4 Tips for Improving Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality This Spring
If you often spend time indoors, there’s a greater need for you to keep your home’s air clean and pollutant-free. This is especially true if your immune system is sensitive to seasonal allergens. However, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Here are four tips for improving the indoor air quality in your Grovetown, Georgia, home this spring.
Protect Your Home From Outdoor Allergens
Common allergens in Grovetown include birch, hickory, and walnut pollen, as well as high counts of grass pollen. If you’ve been outside, it’s easy for pollen to collect on your skin, hair, and clothes. This means the pollutants will move indoors as you do. You can eliminate the presence of air contaminants by:
- Shutting your doors and windows.
- Trimming your lawn to contain grass pollen.
- Disinfecting your laundry and exposed skin.
Use an Air Purifier
Using a whole-home air purifier during the spring will help to make your air cleaner. Installed in your HVAC system, it filters the air and removes up to 99 percent of contaminants. You can also use a portable one if there’s a certain room in your home you want to focus on.
Replace Your Air Filter
Your HVAC filter is bound to get clogged and dirty at some point, and when it does, it won’t be able to stop harmful particulates from circulating throughout your home. Make sure you replace your HVAC filter at least once every one to three months — more often if you suffer from asthma or allergies.
Control Your Home’s Moisture Levels
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers come in handy in the spring. Humidifiers moisturize the air and help eliminate symptoms such as coughing, dry skin, and scratchy throats. Dehumidifiers pull excess moisture from the air and are well-known repellents of dust and dust mites. Both options allow for a cleaner and more comfortable living space.
