How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

February 11, 2016

Stagnant air inside your home could be harmful. The EPA has conducted studies and concluded that the air inside your home can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. We wish the weather were always nice enough that you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Grand Prairie you know that’s not usually an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at Bon Air Service Company has some tips to enhance your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

If you haven’t already, consider investing in a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It’s shocking what a difference a quality vacuum can make on your home’s indoor air quality. Vacuuming once a week with a quality vacuum 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 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 enhancing your indoor air quality. It fights all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. These are the pollutants known to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.

Get Help from Mother Nature

Give mother nature a chance to help you out 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 combat harmful toxins found inside your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.

If you’re looking into adding some foliage 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 bring into to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to try a bite.

Ventilate Your Home

In an effort to make homes more energy-efficient, contemporary homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is amazing for energy-efficiency, the lack of ventilation can generate a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned earlier, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer a variety of ventilation solutions to boost your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
