Clean Your Floors
Vacuum your carpet floors and mop your tile flooring. A variety of allergens, dirt, and dust can stick to your floors. Moreover, these pollutants are capable of being kicked up into the air, which reduces air quality. Use a vacuum with strong suction and a HEPA filter. These features will help your vacuum suck up as many pollutants as possible. In order to keep your floors clean, place a floor mat at the exit doors. This will help keep dirt, dust, and allergens out of the home.
Balance Your Home’s Humidity Level
Dust mites and mold thrive in moisture. So, it is best to keep your humidity level between 30% and 50%. Dehumidifiers or air conditioners can help sustain these levels, or you could consider house plants. Be sure to water them the correct amounts.
Prevent Smoking Within the Home
Smoking is detrimental to the person smoking, and those inhaling the smoke around them. Smoke drastically lowers the quality of air and should be eliminated as much as possible. Cigarette smoke has more than 4,000 chemicals. These chemicals can easily attach to walls, floors, furnishings, and more. Eliminate smoking from your home to improve its air quality.
Clean Your AC’s Filter
Your AC unit’s filter should be cleaned regularly. If you are unsure how to change it, then contact Houston Admiral. We can inspect and maintain your air conditioning with ease. Your AC’s filter should be changed every 60 to 90 days.
