People spend more time indoors than they do outdoors, and often times indoor air can contain more pollutants than outdoor air. Indoor air pollution can
come from a variety of different sources. If the components of your HVAC and air ducts are not cleaning and maintained, contamination from dust, debris,
pollen and even mold can occur.
Here are a few ways that you can improve the air quality in your home so that you breathe cleaner air.

- Use HEPA filters when vacuuming | Keep your home’s floors clean will help improve the quality of the air inside your home. Vacuuming, sweeping
and mopping is important to do on a regular basis. When vacuuming use a HEPA filter that removes 99.97% of particles and prevents allergy and asthma
triggers from being returned back into the air in your home.
- Ventilate | Open up those windows and let some fresh air in. This also will help to circulate the air flow and let the indoor air out.
- Use an air purifier | Air purifiers filter the air in your home to remove impurities and return cleaner air. This is a great temperory option,
especially for someone with allergies.
- Use natural cleaning products, candles and scents | Synthetic fragrances and cleaning products can emit chemicals and harmful particles into
the air. Opt for natural products or making your own using essential oils or citrus.
- Have your air ducts cleaned | By having the components of your HVAC cleaned, included the supply and return ducts and registers, you can make
sure that the air flowing through your home isn’t picking up additional pollutants.
