3 Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
Indoor air pollution is listed as one of the top 5 environmental health risks by the EPA. There are three ways to lessen pollution and improve the Indoor Air Quality of your home:
1. Control the pollutants in your home.
The most effective and generally the most cost-effective way to control Indoor Air Quality is to eliminate the source of the pollution. Common pollutants include paint(VOCs), adhesives and sealants, building materials, pesticides, and cleaning supplies. This also includes dust, smoke, pet dander, molds, and viruses.
2. Improve ventilation.
Open your windows and doors to allow air pollutants in your home to exit and also, to let fresh, outdoor air enter your home (weather permitting).
3. Use Air Cleaners.
Air Cleaners can effectively collect and remove particles from the air. Air cleaners can simply refer to filters, which should be changed a minimum of every 90 days. However, Air Cleaners also refer to in-duct cleaners and portable air cleaners.
