At David White Services, we understand the dangers that indoor air pollution in an Athens, OH, home can cause. Indoor air pollutants can build up, especially in the winter when windows and doors tend to stay closed. Particulates, volatile organic compounds, and bacteria can make asthma worse or spread illness throughout your home. Taking a few steps to keep your air clean can improve the health of your home and those who live in it.
Install a Quality Air Filter
Bacteria and harmful particulates can get circulated throughout your home by your heating and cooling systems. Having clean and functional filters in your system can capture particulates and keep anyone from breathing them in. Getting dirty filters replaced every year can keep your heating and cooling system running smoothly and reliably.
Keep Your Ductwork Clean
Dirt can build up in your ducts and end up circulating around your home. Having a professional perform a thorough duct cleaning on a regular basis can ensure that there aren’t any harmful particles residing in your ducts. Getting ducts cleaned is especially important for homes that have pets in them. Dander and hair can get stuck and cause issues with your ductwork.
Have House Plants
House plants in a building can actually remove harmful chemicals from the air. In exchange, they’ll produce clean oxygen for you to breathe. Certain plants, such as bamboo, are great at cleaning dirty air.
Ventilate Your Home When Possible
While it’s hard to keep windows and doors open when it’s cold outside, take any chance you get to open windows and doors for a little bit. This will let old air that is filled with pollutants get flushed out of your home.
