5 Easy Ways to Boost the Air Quality in Your Corpus Christi Home

June 4, 2013 | Blog

If you have spring and summer allergies, you might be forced to stay inside when the pollen counts get up there. Unfortunately, the air quality in your home can be much worse than it is outside. You don’t have to settle for contaminated air. There are ways to boost the air quality in your Corpus Christi home. Here are five common-sense strategies.

Keep your floors clean

We track in pollutants, both organic and inorganic, and they can collect on wood and tile floors, as well as carpeting. Then they become dispersed in the air. If possible, have your family members and visitors remove their shoes at the door. Be diligent about vacuuming with a HEPA-equipped unit. Also, regularly damp-mop your wood and tile floors.

Reduce moisture

Too much humidity in your home invites mold and mildew. Although your air conditioner is designed to remove humidity, you may also need a dehumidifier. For spot dehumidification, run the exhaust fan in your kitchen while you’re cooking and the exhaust fans in your bathrooms while you’re showering. Keep the bathroom fans on for 10 minutes after you shower, as well.

Say ‘no’ to tobacco smoke

We all know that tobacco smoke can cause a host of heath problems. Make your home a no-smoke zone. If any family member can’t quit, ask him to smoke outside.

Switch to natural products

Cleaning products and other home supplies can have vapors that interfere with breathing. Some even have very harmful volatile organic compounds. Switch to natural products. You can even make some cleaning solutions from items in your pantry. Store pesticides and other harmful products in an out side area.

Clean up after pets

Pet hair and dander can cause allergies to flare up.  In addition food and water bowls or cat litter boxes can create odor or allergy concerns.
