With many families spending more time at home, it is important to consider the safety within the home as much as the safety in public. Even if you don’t have ill visitors coughing and sneezing in your home, there could be contaminants entering it that can adversely affect your indoor air quality. There are several ways that you can be proactive to improve the quality of the air that you and your family are breathing.
- Cleaning products- You may be doing more cleaning than ever right now, but in doing so, you could be adding chemicals that adversely affect indoor air quality. While you do want to use germ-killing products, you can switch to natural cleaners for the bulk of your cleaning.
- Home insulation- If you have cracks, gaps, and other leaks, they are allowing dust and contaminants into your home. Have your home’s insulation assessed by a professional insulation contractor specializing in spray foam insulation. This is the best option for sealing up your home to improve indoor air quality.
- Change filters- Consider using a higher-quality filter for your HVAC system and changing it a bit more regularly than you typically would. With being at home more, the system will run more to compensate.
