How to Improve Indoor Air Quality

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.

Increase Ventilation

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.
