You and your family’s health may be affected by the air quality in your home. Allergens and germs floating in the air you breathe can make you sick, keep you from getting restful sleep, and more. Technology has made it possible to purify your living space easily and affordably. From a UV air purifier to clean air vents, here are seven tips to help you breathe a little easier:
1. Regularly Change Your Furnace and AC Filter
The air filter in your AC unit or furnace acts as a shield against poor air quality in your home. According to the EPA, high-quality HEPA filters are thought to remove up to 99.97% of harmful contaminants such as dust, pollen, mold spores, and bacteria. EnviroKlenz filters can provide that level of protection and more with our patented earth mineral technology, made to capture and neutralize air contaminants.
Dirty filters are not only dangerous to your health, but they can also cause unnecessary strain on your HVAC system. Regular filter replacements can help your equipment run more efficiently and for longer. Depending on the filter type, you should expect to change your air filters every 1-3 months to ensure their ability to clean your air.
Some filter companies make changing filters a breeze – like EnviroKlenz. If you sign up for our subscription delivery, we’ll send you a new filter when it’s time for a replacement. With helpful automated services like this, you’ll never have to worry about forgetting to change your filter on time.
2. Keep the Vents of Your Household Appliances Clean
One simple solution to cleaning the air in your home is keeping your vents dusted and vacuumed. About as often as you change your air filter, examine the vents and vent covers that you can access easily. If you see a thin layer of dust accumulation, it’s easy enough to clean what you can with a slightly damp towel.
A more serious remedy for cleaning the air in your home can involve deep cleaning your home’s ventilation system through a professional service. The EPA recommends that homeowners should only clean their ventilation systems if evidence points to a serious problem, such as repeating and unexplained illness. If you’ve had recurring respiratory problems, this solution might be worth the upfront cost.
3. Routinely Vacuum and Deep Clean Your Carpets and Rugs
Your carpets and rugs can also be traps for dust, allergens, airborne bacteria, and lingering odors. Keeping them clean can help keep your air quality high and your home smelling its freshest. This is especially true if you own pets that shed a lot of hair and dander.
EnviroKlenz household cleaning products can help keep your carpets and rugs free of pungent odors and odor-causing bacteria, all in an environmentally safe manner. Our household products are made to neutralize odors using non-toxic ingredients, and they never contain fillers or additives, making them perfect for homes with small children and pets.
4. Utilize a UV Air Purifier
Some spaces in the home may require special attention when it comes to air purification. This includes smelly areas such as bathrooms or garages or busy environments such as the kitchen or living room. With a clean filter and vents, an air purifier can provide this additional support.
A new way to filter air is found through the EnviroKlenz Air System Plus, using its mineral-based technology to capture, neutralize, and destroy airborne toxins. Paired with UV light purification and standard HEPA filtration, this filtration powerhouse traps and eliminates contaminants including viruses, bacteria like E. coli, and even noxious and harmful gasses. The best part is, EnviroKlenz uses a process that produces no harmful byproducts or negative chemical reactions, so you can cleanse your air without adding anything harmful or toxic back into your home.
Quiet, lightweight, and easy to maintain, a UV air purifier may be a good choice for every room in your home to provide maximum clean air protection.
5. Prevent Mold with a Dehumidifier
A dehumidifier may also be a good option for keeping your home moisture-free. Mold thrives in moist environments, and preventing its formation is necessary in some areas of the country. With proper drainage, a dehumidifier in the right place can stop mold spores from finding a home in your walls, ceiling, and carpets by ridding your air of extra moisture.
6. Use Your Cooking Vents When in the Kitchen
Besides getting a bit smelly during dinnertime, your kitchen can be a source of poor air quality. One way to prevent unwanted air pollution and odors in your kitchen is through the use of your cooking vents. Don’t forget to turn on the exhaust fans whenever you cook on your stovetop or in your oven to lessen smells and cooking-related particulates.
7. Introduce Houseplants to Your Living Space
Not every home has access to fresh, clean air just beyond the windows. You can instead bring a piece of the great outdoors inside. Plants are nature’s air purifiers. With a few common houseplants, ferns, or lilies, not only will the air in your home smell naturally sweet, but your environment will also look pleasing to the eye.
