What Is The Best Way To Improve Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor air quality can be an issue, especially for people with respiratory problems. The best way to improve the quality of your indoor air is to follow some basic steps: make sure you have adequate ventilation, use a high-efficiency particulate arrestor (HEPA) filter, and get rid of any mold or mildew growths around your home. You should also try to minimize smoke from cigarettes and other sources as well as keep up on regular cleaning tasks. Finally, you might want to consider getting a humidifier if you live in a dry climate like Colorado where we see really cold winters.


Cleaning your home can do wonders for the air quality around you. Getting rid of pet dander and mold will make for a much healthier living space, so it’s really important that you are clean as often as possible!

To keep your allergens down, you should vacuum the carpets and area rugs at least once or twice a week with an upright vacuuming. If carpeting isn’t possible for whatever reason (lack of space), opt instead for hard-surface flooring like tiles that offer similar benefits as they all tend not only to be cleaner but also less allergy provoking because there will no longer be any drapes/bedding, etc., left around collecting dust containing countless mites who want nothing more than some free food!

A cluttered space is not only a pain to clean, but it can also cause illness. When you have too much stuff in your house and home- this includes dishes that never get used or rugs with mold growing on them from sitting wet for days at a time – there’s no telling what might happen. So don’t worry if things seem tight; just taking some minutes every other day will make all the difference when designing spots where these accidents may occur.


  • Keep indoor plants in balance.

If you want to avoid indoor allergens, it’s best not to house plants indoors. Indoor greenery can cause problems by fostering the growth of mold and other hazardous matter that may trigger an asthma attack or allergy symptoms in someone with these conditions.


  • Change filters.

It’s important to change the filters on your heating system and have it cleaned from time to time. This will help you avoid respiratory problems caused by dirt that has accumulated over months or even years! You could also consider getting an electrostatic air filter for maximum efficiency in trapping any irritants before they enter your home, like dust particles.


  • Try having air purifiers.

Air purifiers can be the key to a better quality of life for many people with allergies. If you’re allergic and cannot control your source, an air purifier may help capture some irritants in those trigger symptoms like sneezing or coughing spells. Place one near where you spend the most time at home so it’s always available when needed!


  • Consider a dehumidifier.

A dehumidifier is an excellent way to reduce the amount of mold in your home. Bathrooms are also known as a potential source, so it’s important that they’re well ventilated and scrubbed down regularly with bleach solution if there are visible signs on fixtures or walls from black fungus growth.


  • Open up your windows.

Even in the cold months, open them from time to time and allow fresh air into a house that may be feeling closed off due to seasonal changes or just because life is busy outside of our homes . Move potential contaminants out with fans placed strategically around any cooking areas so you can breathe easy while preparing meals without worrying about what might have gone inside!
