Many homeowners will seek ways to help improve their indoor air quality. Particularly those with asthma, allergies, and other respiratory related problems. There are a number of ways to help improve your home indoor air quality. Heart of Texas Chem-Dry will share some of the highly recommended methods to improve your home’s indoor air quality.
Air Duct Cleaning
When seeking ways to improve your home’s indoor air quality, it is best to go straight to the heart of the home’s indoor air. The HVAC system produces the cool and warm air that is circulated throughout the home the majority of the time during the year. Much of the indoor air comes from the HVAC system. All of the air produces comes through the air duct system. Air ducts can become full of dust and other contaminates which are then trapped in the air ducts. The dust and contaminates will then flow effortlessly throughout the home. As the air ducts becomes dirty, they are directly responsible for the indoor air quality. To help improve the indoor air quality it is recommended to have the air ducts cleaned every few years or as needed.
Another major contributor to poor indoor quality is the home’s carpets. The fibers and general design of carpet allows them to trap dirt and other particles that can contaminate the air. Carpet can also develop mold and bacteria that is released into the air. Air can be greatly contaminated due to dirty carpets. To help prevent carpets from contaminating the air it is recommended to vacuum carpet at least once a week and more for busier households. Carpet should also be deep cleaned and treated so as to kill mold or any bacteria that may be inside the carpet. By keeping the carpets as clean as possible, you can keep down indoor contaminates and improve the indoor air quality.
Sofa & Mattress Cleaning
Household furniture is another culprit that can cause poor indoor quality. Not only can dust be trapped inside the fibers of the upholstery, but so much more. As people sit and spend time on their furniture, dead skin, sweat, and bacteria gets inside the upholstery. Upholstery can release dead skin and bacteria into the indoor air. A similar problem that can affect the indoor air is the mattress. Mattresses will also develop dust, dead skin, and bacteria from sweat. The indoor air quality can be affected by the mattress as well as the furniture. Where there is dead skin there will be dust mites. Dust mites are part of human environments. They eat the dead skin humans shed. In turn, dust mites will release their own skin flakes as well as their feces into the air which is responsible for poor indoor quality. Both upholstery and mattresses need to be kept cleaned to remove dust and bacteria. In between deep cleaning, both mattresses and upholstery can be vacuumed to help keep the dust and dead skin to a minimum.
