A home’s air quality is often influenced by certain components in the home such as the air ducts, carpets, and the upholstery, just to name a few. When household members suffer from allergies, asthma attacks, or other respiratory problems, often the air quality inside the home needs to be addressed. There are several ways you can combat poor air quality inside the home. Palm Spring Carpet Cleaners will share how to improve your home’s air quality by targeting the primary culprits.
Air Duct Cleaning
When you have bad indoor air quality, one of the first places you will want to start is with the airducts. Often airducts get left neglected and dust and other contaminates will build up within the ductwork. Each time your HVAC system runs a cycle, the dust and contaminates blow inside the home, effecting the indoor air quality. Airducts can accumulate a number of nasty contaminates such as mold, pest waste, and dust. To ensure the air is clean, you will want to have the airducts cleaned every few years. If your airducts haven’t been cleaned in the past 3 to 5 years, it is definitely time to have them clean. Your home’s indoor air quality will greatly improve.
Next to the air ducts, the carpet is the next major culprit that can affect the home’s indoor air quality. The nature of carpets is that they can easily hold in dirt and other particles that are brought into the home. It is common to find dust, pollen, and even mold in carpets. You can also find dust mites in the carpet as well as the airducts and upholstery. Dust mites are everywhere inside the home. They too have a major influence on the home’s indoor air quality. To help improve the home air quality it is recommended to maintain your home’s carpets. To reduce the amount of contaminates in carpet, you should vacuum the carpets at least once a week, if not more. Next make sure to have them deep cleaned. The average household should consider having the carpet professionally cleaned every 6 months. By keeping the carpet clean you can greatly impact the home indoor air quality and have clean, beautiful carpet at the same time.
Couch & Upholstery Cleaning
The furniture we use every day is another major contributor to your home’s air quality. Upholstery is equally prone to absorbing dust and pollen. Upholstery is also exposed to spills and human sweat which becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. Upholstery can also develop mold, however, usually only after intense exposure to moisture. Upholstery also benefits from routine cleaning. The homeowner should make sure to vacuum the upholstery weekly and have the upholstery professionally cleaned as well. You can often schedule your carpet cleaning to coincide with your carpet cleaning. By maintaining clean upholstery your indoor air will improve.
