Does your place feel humid? Do you feel sick at home? Are there any moldy
odors? If your answer to any of those questions is yes, it is likely that
the air you’re breathing in at home isn’t healthy. Any of
those problems can be the result of poor
indoor air quality.
If left untreated, poor indoor air can cause those inside to develop long-term
health issues. Below we have laid out some ways you can improve the quality
of air inside your home.
Air that’s trapped in one location will degrade as it is introduced
to different pollutants. This air needs to be exchanged with cleaner outdoor
air. Different pollutants include home cleaning products, pesticides,
secondhand smoke, and more. If any of these pollutants are released into
the air and are never let out, you will continue to breathe them in, which
will cause health problems.
Use a Dehumidifier
A dehumidifier is a machine that extracts water from moist air; they are
sold in different sizes and prices. Humidity in every home should be somewhere
between 30-50 percent. It is important to know the level of humidity in
your home, especially in Florida.
A humidity level less than 30 percent means your home is too dry, a humidity
level more than that means that there is too much moisture in the air
inside your home. Mold growth is the result of too much moisture in the
air and high humidity also attracts insects.
Get Your AC Cleaned
Using your AC system is the best way to manage the quality of air inside
your home, but if your AC isn’t clean, then it will only contribute
to the problem by being a source of more contaminated air. Dust and bacteria
build up inside dirty AC systems, making its way into your home.
A clean AC system is important because not only will it blow clean air into your home, but
it will also be able to ventilate the dirty air outwards and away from
you and your family.
