Indoor air quality in buildings is often overlooked. Air pollution, in the form of particulates or harmful vapors called volatile organic compounds, can build up inside over time. This problem is more pronounced in the winter months when windows and doors tend to stay closed for longer periods of time. Polluted air can cause a wide variety of respiratory problems and spread disease if not properly taken care of. Taking a few steps can improve indoor air quality in your home.
Open Windows and Doors
Whenever possible, open some windows and doors in your home. Even a small amount of fresh air can flush out particulates and bring fresh air in.
Get Your Ductwork Cleaned
Dirty ducts can hold on to dirt and decrease the cleanliness of the air in your home. Dirty ducts can also promote the growth of bacteria, and this bacteria can then be released into your home. Regular cleanings by an HVAC professional can ensure that your entire duct system is free of dirt and grime. This can improve air flow throughout your house.
