There are many ways you can keep your family safe and healthy. However, many do not look to the interior of their home and the air they are breathing. A lot of times, some conditions make the air inside of your home unclean. It could be filled with bacteria or harmful pathogens. It is essential to keep your air ducts, air conditioning, and furnace clean so they do not expel unhealthy air. Fortunately, there are many ways you can keep your air clean and keep airborne illnesses from spreading.
Wash Your Hands
If you don’t wash your hands now, then you are contributing to illness to yourself and those around you. Cleaning your hands is the first line of defense against bacteria. It keeps it from spreading and kills bacteria that could potentially spread. Washing your hands after you go to the bathroom, and before and after food preparation is necessary.
Get an Air Purifier
One way to directly remove bacteria from the air is with an air purifier. These handy devices are able to remove tiny particles that could carry harmful illnesses. Air purifiers can also remove viruses and bacteria from the air. Obtaining an air purifier with a UV light will help remove the harmful pathogens.
Clean Your Air Ducts
Your AC and furnace continuously push air throughout your house via air ducts. Air ducts can trap particles and bacteria, which then leads to further bacteria growth or even mold. Routinely cleaning your air ducts is essential because they will create terrible air quality. Poor maintenance on your furnace or AC can also promote the bacteria growth in air ducts.
Maintain Your AC and Furnace
Keep your home’s air clean by adequately maintaining your air conditioning and furnace. These machines are what push the air through your house, so you must keep them running correctly. Both devices have filters that should be cleaned or replaced frequently.
