How Can I Improve Indoor Air Quality?
Between work and the time we spend at home with our families, many people spend a good chunk of their time indoors. This is one reason why the topic of indoor air quality has garnered more attention in recent years.
Indoor Air Quality and You
The quality of the air inside your home and workplace can affect your health and mood. If you have allergies, indoor air contaminated with pollens and biological agents can bring on allergic symptoms. Certain indoor air pollution, such as radon contamination, can even cause cancer. Radon is believed to be the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States.
Steps for Better Air Quality
The good news is that you can take steps to improve the air quality inside your house.
Step 1. Avoid Chemical Air Fresheners and Sprays
Though spraying an air freshener or using a plug-in freshening device may make the house smell appealing, these chemicals actually pollute the indoor air. Air fresheners can contain toxins, such as tonalide, phtalates and galaxolide. Instead, try an organic do-it-yourself air freshener by slow-boiling herbs, citrus fruits, cinnamon and vanilla in a small crock pot.
Step 2. Houseplants
Plants act as natural air cleaners. Purchase a few plants for the home and office. Areca palms and Boston Ferns are the most effective plants for filtering toxins from the air. Air quality experts recommend one houseplant for every 100 feet of floor space. If you have a 1500 square foot home, you should have at least 15 houseplants. If you or a family member are sensitive to pollen and molds, be sure to select plants that will not aggravate allergies.
Step 3. Professional Duct Cleaning
Professional duct cleaning will clear many contaminants from the ductwork system. Not only will cleaning your ducts improve the quality of your home’s air, but clean ducts will improve the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning system.
Step 4. Air Quality Solutions
Whole-home air filtration systems install along side your heating and air conditioning system. These units clean over 99 percent of the airborne contaminants from the air. Unbalanced relative humidity levels can also impact the quality of your air. Your air quality solution may include a whole-home humidification system to regulate your home’s humidity levels.
Step 5. Keep Your Air Filter Clean
Keep your filter clean by changing or replacing it every four weeks during the months of high demand.
Step 6. Test Your Home for Radon
Radon is a poisonous gas that rises out of the soil and soaks into the ground around the home. Radon can enter the home through cracks and faults in the foundation. You can test for radon yourself with a home testing kit purchased from your local home improvement store. You may also hire an air quality specialist to test your home for the toxic gas. If radon is detected, mitigation methods include building a system that diverts the gas away from the home. Radon mitigation companies specialize in ridding homes of radon.
