Stagnant air inside your home could be dangerous. The EPA has conducted studies and those studies came to the conclusion that the air inside your home can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. It would be a dream to always have the kind of weather where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Omaha you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at The Frazier Company has some tips to boost 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. You’d be surprised at 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 good place to start. If anyone in your home 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 your indoor air quality needs. It eradicates 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. As you may recall from science class, plants consume carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also fight off dangerous toxins found inside your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.
If you’d like to enlist some plant life 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 pets, 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 order to make homes more energy-efficient, today’s homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is amazing for energy-efficiency, the shortage of ventilation can generate 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.
