After being exposed to the pollutants and allergens found outdoors, you want to be able to come home to experience safe, healthy air conditions.

If you want to learn more about what you can do to improve indoor air quality, here are three measures you can take:

3 Tips to Improve Indoor Air Quality

  1. Air purifiers: These devices work to clean and filter your indoor air by removing harmful particles. Those with high-efficiency particulate absorbing, or HEPA, filters are the most successful at this.
  2. Quality insulation: Insulation can do an effective job of sealing your home from contaminants. Spray foam insulation can be relied upon to fill the tiniest cracks and most hard-to-reach crevices of your home, preventing dust, allergens, and pollutants from entering. This type of insulation also works to keep the moisture levels within your home down, meaning air quality disruptors like mold and mildew are prevented from growing.
  3. Improving ventilation: In some cases, indoor pollutants may be causing your indoor air quality trouble. This can happen when you’re indoors and engaging in activities like painting, cooking, cleaning with harsh chemicals, welding, or sanding. When this happens, it’s a good idea to increase the flow of air by turning on fans and opening windows and doors if the outdoor air is clean and low in pollen.
