Indoor Air Quality And Health

Indoor Air Quality And Health

If the air filter is dirty, the air you are breathing is dirty too. One of the purposes of an air filter is to clean the air from microscopic particles. Those can be dust, pollen, pet dander, bacteria, and even smoke. But, a blocked filter continuously recirculates those particles back into the home, causing you and your family numerous health problems like:

– Headaches
– Fatigue
– Cold
– Chronic allergies

If you own pets, the indoor air quality will be even worse with a clogged filter. The simple change in air temperature may also trigger sinus congestion and other allergic reactions.

To reduce these reactions, we suggest taking the following steps:

1. Keep the humidity in your home below 50 percent
2. Avoid humidifiers and vaporizers
3. Vacuum regularly and with a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter
4. Schedule a regular HVAC maintenance
5. Avoid smoking indoors
6. Groom your pets outside and wash their bedding once a month
