How to Prevent Fall Indoor Air Quality Concerns
The fall can present a host of indoor air quality concerns that you should look into with regard to your living space. Autumn can be a trying time for those who are susceptible to allergies, and other health concerns can arise from various pollutants.
Keep Allergens and Other Pollutants at Bay
Ragweed and other plant allergens can find their way into your home from the outdoors. Dust, dirt and human-created pollutants can also enter your house from open doors and windows. Make sure you limit the amount of time you leave your doors and windows open in order to avoid allowing pollutants to enter your home.
When airing out your home, be mindful of the outdoor air quality. Make sure you keep chemicals and cleaners inside the home tightly sealed when not in use. Brushing your pets outdoors and keeping your home dust-free will help keep your indoor air quality optimal for your health.
Change Air Filters Regularly
Air filters can get backed up with dust and other grime. Checking your air filters regularly and replacing them when they have become dirty is a great way to keep your indoor air free of bothersome pollutants. If you are not sure what type of air filter you need or how to replace it, ask a qualified technician to perform scheduled maintenance on your HVAC system.
Install an Air Purifier
Depending on your budget and your needs, you can install a portable or whole-house air purifier. This will provide the added layer of protection from airborne particles that can find their way into your house.
