Did you know that inside your home, mold, mildew, dust, and other odors can cause itchy eyes, scratchy throats, and headaches? You can keep your home smelling fresh and your family breathing easy by following these tips!
Clean Heating and Cooling System Ducts Regularly
Cleaning the system ducts will not only increase ventilation and air circulation, they also reduce the level of dust, animal dander, and other allergens, as well as remove carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide gases.
Use an Indoor Air Cleaner for Tough Allergen Problems
An air-cleaning device is useful for when allergens are too difficult to control with just the ordinary filters. The portable devices can either use ultraviolet radiation to destroy viruses and bacteria or produce ozone that turns pollutants into harmless substances.
Open the Windows and Let Your Home Breathe
When you take showers or wash your laundry, turn on the ceiling (or stand-alone) fans to keep the bathrooms, basements, and laundry rooms dry. While you’re cooking, turn on the kitchen fans so they can remove odors and humidity. When it’s bright and sunny outside, open your windows! Letting the breeze circulate through your home lowers indoor humidity and remove stale smells.
