Stagnant air inside your home could be dangerous. The EPA has conducted studies and concluded that your home’s air can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. We wish the weather were always nice enough that you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Hasbrouck Heights you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at ACE Solutions 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 is surprising what a difference a quality vacuum can make on the air quality of your home. Vacuuming once a week with a quality vacuum will work to fight off allergens and dust that collects in your carpets and furniture.
Of course your vacuum can’t pick up everything, but it’s a wonderful place to start. If anyone in your home is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to think about getting 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 three pollutants have been shown to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.
Get Help from Mother Nature
Give mother nature a chance to help you out and purify your air in a natural way. Science class taught us, plants consume carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also battle 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 determined the best 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 snack on them.
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 incredible for energy-efficiency, the absence of ventilation can cause a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned earlier, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer many ventilation solutions to improve your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
