Stagnant air inside your home could be dangerous. The EPA has conducted studies and the results of those studies indicate that the air inside your home 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 Holdrege you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at Durable Service has some tips to improve your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.
If you haven’t already, consider purchasing a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It’s shocking the improvement a quality vacuum can make on the quality of air inside your home. Using a quality vacuum once a week will work to battle allergens and dust that collects in your carpets and furniture.
Of course your vacuum can’t pick up everything, but it’s a great place to start. If someone in your family is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to consider a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for improving your indoor air quality. It fights all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. All of these things have been found 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 absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also battle harmful toxins found inside your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.
If you’d like add some plants to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study determined the ideal plants for such an important task. If you have any furry family members, double-check and make sure any plants you bring into to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to conduct a taste test.
Ventilate Your Home
In working 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 create a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned earlier, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer a wide range of ventilation solutions to improve your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
Your home’s comfort and indoor air quality is important to the team at Durable Service in Holdrege. We will work to help you breathe healthy and breathe easy. If you’re ready for some fresher air give us a call at 308-995-8177 and speak with our indoor air quality professionals.
