Vacuuming carpet to improve air quality

How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Stagnant air inside your home could be unhealthy. The EPA has conducted studies and those studies came to the conclusion 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 Napoleon and Northwest Ohio you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when the weather doesn’t allow you to open the windows, the team at Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. has some tips to improve your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

If you haven’t already, look into buying 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 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 you have someone in your home that is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to think about getting a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for your indoor air quality needs. 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

Let mother nature lend you a hand and purify your air in a natural way. As you may recall from science class, plants consume carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also fight off dangerous toxins 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 determined the best 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 conduct a taste test.

Ventilate Your Home

In working to make homes more energy-efficient, modern homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is incredible for energy-efficiency, the shortage of ventilation can cause a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we all know, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer a wide range of ventilation solutions to boost your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
