Pollution isn't just a worry when you head outside. The air inside of your home or office can also be contaminated. Improving indoor air quality is just as important as improving outdoor air quality, possibly even more so due to the many hours we spend indoors each day. Here are 5 simple ways to improve the air quality in your home or office, which can in turn prevent you needing San Diego mold removal
Skip the Air Fresheners
That bottle of air freshener might make your home smell good temporarily, but it also releases chemicals into the air that will stick around for a long time after the smell has faded. Skip the sprays, cleaners and other products with synthetic fragrances and make your home smell fresh naturally. Fresh sliced lemons in the disposal will make your kitchen smell lemony fresh. An open window will let in fresh air and let out chemicals that may be lurking in your home's air.
Clean Your Carpets and Floors
Dust is a magnet for allergens and chemicals, which when in a humid environment cause a need for San Diego mold restoration. These toxic substances can accumulate in the dust in your home and compromise your indoor air quality. The solution is simple. Mop, sweep and vacuum regularly. Don't forget to bring the professionals in at least once a year, more often if you have pets or children, for a carpet cleaning. Clean carpets and floors will improve the air quality in your home and as a bonus look great too.
A little ventilation can go a long way when it comes to indoor air quality. Open a window and let in some fresh outdoor air. If allergies are a problem you can use air purifiers or air filters to ventilate your home, and get a mold inspection in San Diego.
