Did you know that polluted air can easily cause severe health problems such as asthma and cardiovascular diseases? When air pollutants get into our lungs, they can enter the bloodstream and be carried to our internal organs such as the brain. ⁠⠀

It is therefore important to make conscious efforts in improving indoor air quality to help avoid allergy symptoms, breathing problems, cardiovascular diseases, and to prevent the spread of viruses such as COVID-19.

⁠Here are some tips to improve air quality at home.

Change your AC filter.

AC filters should regularly be checked and cleaned thoroughly since they accumulate dirt, dust, and bacteria from constantly working to give our homes the desired temperature.

Check your air ducts.

Air ducts are in charge of distributing hot and cold air throughout your home, providing a comfortable climate in every room. But if not installed properly, dust and even mold can accumulate in your ducts, distributing contaminants from one room to another and reducing the overall air quality. You can get help from professional disinfecting services in Sydney to check your ducts and to make sure they are producing fresh, clean air.

Keep your rugs and carpet clean.

Carpets and rugs do not only increase the comfort and beauty of our home, but they also act as air filters, trapping dust and other tiny particles in their fabrics. It is important to regularly vacuum and clean carpets to get rid of accumulated dirt.

Control humidity in your home.

Humid and moist conditions breed mold and mildew that can trigger respiratory issues like allergies and asthma. Depending on your location, the hot summer months can bring about especially humid conditions. Reduce the amount of moisture in the air and curb the growth of irritating molds with a few well-placed dehumidifiers.
