Stagnant air inside your home could be harmful. The EPA has conducted studies and the results of those studies indicate that your home’s air can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. It would be a dream to always have the kind of weather where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Fort Lauderdale you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at Solar Air Inc. has some tips to enhance your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.
If you haven’t already, look into buying a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It’s shocking what a difference a quality vacuum can make on the quality of air inside your home. Using a quality vacuum each week will work to combat allergens and dust that collects in your carpets and furniture.
Of course your vacuum can’t pick up everything, but it’s a good place to start. If someone in your family is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to look into a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for your indoor air quality needs. It destroys all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. These are the pollutants known to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.
Get Help from Mother Nature
Mother nature would be happy to help you purify your air in a natural way. As you may recall from science class, plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also combat harmful toxins within your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.
If you’re looking into adding some foliage to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study identified the optimal plants for such an important task. If you have any furry friends, double-check and make sure any plants you add to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to try a bite.
Ventilate Your Home
In order to make homes more energy-efficient, today’s homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is awesome for energy-efficiency, the shortage of ventilation can cause a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned previously, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer many ventilation solutions to boost your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
