Here are some ideas for having a healthy, air purified home:
- Keep your home clean: Regular cleaning can help remove dust, pet dander, and other pollutants from your home. Be sure to vacuum carpets and upholstery, mop floors, and dust surfaces regularly.
- Use natural cleaning products: Many conventional cleaning products contain harsh chemicals that can irritate your lungs and contribute to indoor air pollution. Instead, use natural, non-toxic cleaning products like vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils.
- Ventilate your home: Proper ventilation is important for maintaining good indoor air quality. Open windows and doors to allow fresh air to circulate through your home, and use exhaust fans in bathrooms and kitchens to remove excess moisture and odors.
- Use air purifiers: Air purifiers can help remove pollutants like dust, pollen, and smoke from the air. Look for a model with a HEPA filter, which can trap particles as small as 0.3 microns.
- Control humidity: High humidity levels can promote the growth of mold and mildew, which can negatively impact indoor air quality. Use a dehumidifier to control moisture levels, and fix any leaks or water damage promptly.
- Choose natural materials: Some building materials and furnishings can emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can be harmful to your health. Choose natural, low-VOC materials like hardwood floors, wool carpets, and cotton or linen upholstery.
- Avoid smoking indoors: Smoking indoors can release harmful chemicals and particles into the air. If you or someone in your household smokes, try to quit or smoke outside.
- Have a UV Light installed for each unit in your home to clean the air before it hits your coils.
- Have a plasma ionization system installed in your airflow system to mitigate bacteria and viruses within your home.
