Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the condition of your home’s breathable air. The cleaner it is, the healthier your indoor environment will be. Spring cleaning is one of the best ways to improve the IAQ of your home’s living spaces.
Continue reading as Tyler Heating, Air Conditioning, Refrigeration LLC shares three spring cleaning tips that can help improve your home’s indoor air quality.
Invest in good cleaning supplies. Manual dusting, wiping and sweeping are fine, but modern technology and appliances can make your spring cleaning experience easier. Vapor steam cleaners, for example, aid in disinfecting your home and eliminating bacteria. They work better than sponges and rags, too. In addition, vacuums with HEPA filters are great for improving IAQ, as they remove allergens and other contaminants on surfaces.
Clean your air ducts. Allergens and pollutants can accumulate and settle in your air ducts. That’s why it’s important to clean them regularly. If your ducts aren’t cleared of dirt and debris, they may cause health issues in your family as they’re blown out of the ducts and into your living spaces. Keep your ducts clean to prevent allergies and respiratory problems and lessen the strain on your air conditioning system.
Replace your filters. Regularly replacing your air conditioner’s filters helps improve IAQ and enables your air conditioner to be more efficient. The more dust and other particles that are trapped in the filters, the harder it is for air to flow properly. This forces your air conditioning system to work harder than it should. Generally, it’s best to replace your filters every 30 to 90 days to ensure good IAQ and air conditioning performance.
