Indoor air quality can affect your family’s health and is often more polluted than the outside air. Furnishings, electronics and even pets can create unhealthy levels of pollutants in the air in your Olathe, Kansas, home. You can’t hide with spray air fresheners. The best solution to improve indoor air quality is to install an air purifier, a ventilator or a humidifier. As a result, you’ll enjoy cleaner air and breathe easier.
Fresh Air and Plants
One simple and easy way to freshen the air in your home naturally is to open your windows on a cool day. Allowing fresh air to come into the home helps to displace the stale air filled with dust and pet dander that has been circulating. You can also place house plants throughout your home to clean the air or install a humidifier. Not only do green plants look great, but they can also help provide quality air.
Air Conditioning and Filters
Another great way to improve the air quality in your home is to run your HVAC unit. The air filters in these units clean the air before pumping it into your home. You might want to install an air purifier or ventilator that will filter even more pollutants. Our knowledgeable HVAC professionals can complete an assessment of your home and recommend the best products.
Natural Cleaning Products
Most people believe cleaning regularly is the best way to keep the air fresh in a home. But if you’re not using the correct cleaning products, you might actually be filling your air with volatile organic compounds. If anyone in your home suffers from asthma, use natural cleaning products and stay away from air fresheners and fragrance filled cleaners. Using a high-quality air filter in your HVAC unit will also help keep the air clean.
