When allergy season comes around, you may just want to stay inside and keep out of the polluted outdoor air. However, the indoors can cause just as much suffering from allergies and asthma if your air quality is poor. There can be a variety of reasons for poor air quality indoors. However, there are several things you can do to get and maintain great indoor air quality.
What Causes Bad Indoor Air Quality?
Many cleaning supplies and paints contain harmful chemicals that get into the air. Dust buildup, low AC unit efficiency, poor air circulation and more can cause a lot of problems and make it hard for you to breathe. Too much moisture in the air contributes to mold and mildew growth, which in turn will affect your allergies or asthma.
Getting the Quality You Want
Here are a few easy ways you can maintain good air quality:
- Get house plants that clean your air of pollutants
- Have your air conditioning system cleaned regularly
- Ventilate your home with a cross breeze
There are plenty of houseplants, like rubber plants, that remove chemicals like formaldehyde from the air in addition to adding oxygen. When your AC unit is dirty and filled with gunk, is it any wonder that there are a lot of pollutants getting into the air? Cleaning coils and fans to remove the layers of grime should be a regular task. If you live in San Antonio or the surrounding area, Rosenberg Indoor Comfort can do this for you.
