There are several air factors that can affect the air quality of your home. The best way to combat these pollutants is to educate you on them and put preventive measures or solutions in place.
Air that’s too moist or dry – Any air that is too moist will be a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, or other organic irritants in your home. Air that is too dry can make you and your family uncomfortable through dry skin. Extremely dry air also allows dust and other particles to fly around your home more easily.
Pets – Our family animals can contribute to a large portion of the pollutants in your air. Once airborne, the pollutants from pets can travel around your home and affect any sensitive family members. If you have a pet, it’s best to keep them off furniture and out of bedrooms.
Smoke – Smoke, especially tobacco smoke, contains thousands of chemicals that can linger inside your home long after the smoke is gone.
Pollen – If it’s outside, there is a good chance it is inside your home as well. During pollen season try your best to not allow pollen into your home through open windows and doors, especially if you have family members prone to allergies.
Dust – The most commonly seen air pollutant. As hard as we try to keep our homes clean it is almost impossible to eliminate dust from your home. As a tip your family should try to keep clean linens to avoid dust mites.
