Vacuuming carpet to improve air quality

How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Stagnant air inside your home could be harmful. The EPA has conducted studies and those studies came to the conclusion that your home’s air can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. It would be nice if every day was the kind of day where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Hattiesburg you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when the weather doesn’t allow you to open the windows, the team at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning has some tips to improve your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

If you haven’t already, consider investing in a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. You’d be surprised at what an improvement a quality vacuum can make on the air quality of your home. Using a quality vacuum each week will work to combat allergens and dust that collects in your carpets and furniture.

Of course your vacuum can’t pick up everything, but it’s a good place to start. If anyone in your home is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to consider a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for improving your indoor air quality. It destroys all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. These are the pollutants known to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.

Get Help from Mother Nature

Give mother nature a chance to help you out and purify your air in a natural way. As we all learned in science class, plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also fight off dangerous toxins contained within your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.

If you’d like add some plants to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study determined the ideal plants for such an important task. If you have any pets, double-check and make sure any plants you add to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to try a bite.

Ventilate Your Home

In an effort to make homes more energy-efficient, modern homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is amazing for energy-efficiency, the absence of ventilation can generate a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we all know, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer a variety of ventilation solutions to improve your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
