How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

February 11, 2016

Stagnant air inside your home could be dangerous. The EPA has conducted studies and concluded 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 Cape Coral you know that’s not usually an option. For those days when the weather doesn’t allow you to open the windows, the team at Comfort Zone Inc has some tips to boost your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

If you haven’t already, consider purchasing a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It is surprising what a difference a quality vacuum can make on the air quality of your home. Vacuuming once a week with a quality vacuum will work to combat 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 enhancing your indoor air quality. It destroys all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. These are the pollutants known to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.

Get Help from Mother Nature

Mother nature would be happy to help you 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’re looking into adding some foliage to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study figured out the optimal plants for such an important task. If you have any furry friends, double-check and make sure any plants you add to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to conduct a taste test.

Ventilate Your Home

In an effort to make homes more energy-efficient, modern homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is awesome for energy-efficiency, the lack of ventilation can generate a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we all know, 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.
