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 the results of those studies indicate that indoor air can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. It would be nice if every day was the kind of day where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Laguna Hills you know that’s often not an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at White Mechanical, Inc. has some tips to boost your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

If you haven’t already, consider purchasing a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It is surprising what a difference a quality vacuum can make on your home’s indoor air quality. Using a quality vacuum each week will work to fight off 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 think about getting a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for your indoor air quality needs. It destroys all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. These three pollutants have been shown to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.

Get Help from Mother Nature

Let mother nature lend you a hand and purify your air in a natural way. As you may recall from science class, plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also battle harmful toxins contained within your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.

If you’d like add some plants to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study figured out the ideal plants for such an important task. If you have any pets, double-check and make sure any plants you introduce 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, modern homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is incredible for energy-efficiency, the absence of ventilation can create a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned previously, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer a wide range of ventilation solutions to boost your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
