Clean The Air In Your Home For Your One Safe Place To Breathe

Posted on

Unless you're walking around town wearing a respirator, you can't control the quality of the air that you breathe while you're out and about—but, you can control the quality of the air you breathe when you're in your own home. Here, you'll find a few ways to improve the quality of air where you live so you can at least breathe freely in comfort.

Run a Home Air Purification System

There are so many options of home air purification systems available for you to choose from. Do you suffer from allergies or asthma? If so, you won't want to skimp on the system that you choose: you'll want a whole-house air filtration and purification system. These systems tie into the home's heating and cooling ductwork to pull the dirty air from within the house, purify it, and send it back into your home clean and free of contaminants.

If you're just looking to improve the quality of air within your home but don't need a full-blown air purification system, you can find some that can be used in individual rooms. This is ideal for a few reasons; you can place it in a room where someone needs cleaner air to live more comfortably, you can move it from room to room as needed, and they are much more affordable than whole-house systems.

For more information about these systems contact a company like Smell Fresh Arizona, LLC.

Keep the Floors Clean

Yes, the floors need to be kept clean. It might not seem to make much sense, but all of the dust and contaminants that are on the floors will become airborne each time someone passes over the floor.

If you have a carpeted home, you will need to invest in a good vacuum with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters inside, and you'll need to use it a few times each week for heavily trafficked areas and once a week in the rest of the home.

If you have hard-surface floors, don't think that they'll stay clean on their own—you will need to dust-mop the floors at least a few times each week. The truth is, hard floors may actually contribute to airborne particles more than carpeting; the carpet fibers trap the dust, but the hard floors allow everything to float around.

Your home can be the one place in your life that you can breathe freely without worrying about what you're taking into your lungs. Hopefully, the advice above can help you create the space you love and feel good living in.
