Friends, not only is it time to begin your spring cleaning, but this week also happens to be National Cleaning Week — so why not celebrate by ensuring your home’s air quality is the cleanest in town! The truth is this: most homeowners don’t realize, that without proper care, yourindoor air quality can often be worse than the air you find outdoors. In fact, according to the EPA, indoor air pollution can be 2-5 times more potent than outdoor air pollution. When you think about it, this just makes sense. Our homes actually trap and recirculate the same air through our heating and air conditioning systems. Luckily, at Anderson, we have a variety of ways to ensure your home’s air quality is where it needs to be so you can get through allergy season with ease!
Spring Clean Your Home
The most basic way to ensure that you are keeping your home as allergen-free as possible is by keeping up with cleaning. Dust and pollen can build up quickly in the spring months, but add pet dander into the mix and you are asking for a rough allergy season. To keep your symptoms at bay, dust more often, followed by keeping your windows closed on high pollen days.
It doesn’t take long for outdoor allergens to attach themselves to your clothes and shoes. Before you know it, you are tracking these outdoor debris through your house. To avoid this, take off shoes and coats at the front door — and for days where you’ve spent a lot of time outdoors, you’ll also want to change your clothes, too.
Now is the perfect time of year to take a look at your air filters. Check them monthly, change them if they are dirty and even consider your options for a filter upgrade. In fact, a dirty filter makes it harder for the material to filter out allergens in the air, which can lead to your system having to work overtime. To ensure you are not putting stress on your HVAC system and that it’s pumping out the cleanest air it can, make sure you keep your air filters clean.
