Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, we spend more of our time inside our home. Unfortunately, even the indoor air could also pose health risks to you and your family. Our experts at Ryan Heating & Air would like to share some tips on how you can achieve and maintain a healthier and safer indoor space. Keep reading!
Keep Your House Clean
Now is the time to give your house a deep cleaning. Vacuum the carpets, floors, and upholstery at least once a month. Also, wash the beddings, drapes, and rugs. You can place mats in doorways and other areas around your home to keep dust away. These simple household chores can help eliminate dirt and other allergens lurking in your space.
Refrain from Using VOC Products
Household cleaners such as disinfectants, aerosol sprays, and paints contain harmful chemicals called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). These items give off fumes that can irritate your lungs, eyes, skin, and nose. Consider using eco-friendly cleaning products to protect your indoor air quality.
Groom Your Furry Friends
You may not believe this, but your loyal companions can put your health at risk. Your dogs and cats can be detrimental to your indoor air quality. They can carry in pollen, dust and dirt that can trigger allergies. Bathe them regularly and clean their beddings to minimize the risk of asthma attacks and other respiratory ailments.
Change Your Air Filters
Your filter plays a significant role in keeping a clean and healthy indoor air. It traps harmful air contaminants that threaten both your health and comfort. Changing it regularly helps reduce your exposure to airborne pollutants. Clean air filters offer you a cleaner and safer home environment.
