How to Improve Indoor Air Quality

Are you dealing with dust, pollen, mold spores, or similar indoor air pollutants in your home? Not only can this debris worsen allergies, it can also make you or your family members sick. Here are some tips from the indoor air quality experts at Iceberg Home Services detailing the best ways to improve air quality!

What You Can Do to Improve the IAQ of Your Florida Home

There are quite a few very simple changes and practices you can implement to give your air quality a boost:

  • Keep fabrics clean. While much of the dust and dander you actually see in your home is on wood and furniture surfaces, it’s actually cloth and fabrics that carry the most. This is because we tend to clean these far less often, and their fibrous nature tends to pick up and hold pollutants far more readily. For this reason, be sure to clean bedclothes and drapes weekly and vacuum routinely.
  • Start a no-shoes policy. Tons of dust and pollen are carried in on footwear coming in from outside. To prevent this from happening as much as possible, start a no-shoes on in the home policy and back it up with a good floor mat.
  • Change your air filters. Your HVAC system can do a good bit of air cleaning all on its own, provided the air filter stays clean and routinely changed. For the best results, be sure to swap it out once every two months at least.
  • Air things out from time to time. When we think of dust and pollen, many of us will begin to picture roads and fields. But in fact, indoor air is much denser with these pollutants. This is because once in the home they don’t really have anywhere to go, so instead, they stick around and pile up along floors, walls, and on furniture. A breath of fresh air can do wonders, so open the windows on a nice day!

What Professionals Can Do to Improve Your IAQ

The tips above can go a long way in helping reduce allergies and in improving the quality of your air, but for the best results and an all-around more efficient solution, getting in touch with an air quality specialist is even better. IAQ experts offer:

  • Duct cleaning services. Much of the mess that gets into your home air has nowhere to go, so it tends to pile up in places. And one of the largest sanctuaries by far for these pollutants is your ducts! Duct cleaning can remove massive amounts of mess and can even provide HVAC efficiency boosts as well.
  • Air cleaner installation. Air cleaners, filtration systems, and air purifiers are the number one way to get a permanent solution to all of your air quality woes. Installed directly into ducted systems, these IAQ products work to remove or destroy all of the common home air pollutants, including dust, dander, mold spores, pollen, and even many forms of bacteria.
