Tips For Better Air Quality In The Home

Breathing easy is important for the health of you and your family, and the one place you should be able to breathe the easiest is in the home. However, the air indoors is oftentimes more polluted than the air outdoors, as dust and other pollutants and allergens build up over time and float in the air throughout the house. For this reason, you should take the necessary steps to ensure the air quality in your home is always at a positive level. As long as you keep up with the air quality techniques, you and your family should be doing well and be able to keep good health. If you have any questions on any of these techniques, contact a professional who can help you with the crawl space restoration in Portland process.

Keep Floors Clean

Vacuum, mop, and prevent outdoor allergens from entering the home. Using a vacuum with a HEPA filter is the best way to keep your carpets free of dust and other air particles that can be harmful. Strong suction vacuum cleaners are important to use, and you should consider replacing your vacuum if the suction is weak. Mopping hard floors gets everything that the vacuum leaves behind. Newer model mops are the best for this, as they are designed to capture more dirt and dust than older styles. Use mats and have guests remove shoes before coming inside to prevent outdoor materials from getting in.

No Smoking

Secondhand cigarette smoke can linger in the home and cause problems for everyone. It will increase risk for asthma, cancer, infections, and other problems, which is why you should always smoke outside if you need a cigarette. Another great way to reduce cigarette smoke is to quit smoking. There are numerous methods for quitting, and you can find support groups that will work with you personally to help you kick the habit. Many people have quit over the past few years, and they are much healthier for it.

Keep Humidity Under Control

Dehumidifiers are great for keeping the air clean and controlling the level of moisture present in the home. Excessive moisture leads to rotting walls and mold formation, which is never healthy for anyone. Mold can increase allergic reactions, cause respiratory problems in the entire family, and even put you at a greater risk for death. Prevent mold formation by keeping the humidity level in your home at a reasonable level.
