Vacuuming carpet to improve air quality

How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Stagnant air inside your home could be dangerous. The EPA has conducted studies and the results of those studies indicate that your home’s air can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. It would be a dream to always have the kind of weather where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Englewood you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at TemperaturePro® 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. You’d be surprised at what a difference a quality vacuum can make on the air quality of your home. Using a quality vacuum once a week will work to combat allergens and dust that collects in your carpets and furniture.

Of course your vacuum can’t pick up everything, but it’s a great place to start. If someone in your family is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to consider a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for improving your indoor air quality. It eradicates all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. All of these things have been found to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.

Get Help from Mother Nature

Mother nature would be happy to help you purify your air in a natural way. As we all learned in science class, plants consume carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also combat harmful toxins contained within your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.

If you’d like to enlist some plant life to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study figured out the optimal plants for such an important task. If you have any furry friends, double-check and make sure any plants you introduce to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to conduct a taste test.

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 amazing for energy-efficiency, the absence of ventilation can generate a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we all know, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer a variety of ventilation solutions to enhance your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
