3 Ways to Boost Air Quality In Your Home

While you might look forward to the delightful colors of spring, you might also be dreading the itchy, watery eyes and sneezing those beautiful flowers bring. Here are some quick tips to help:

Choose the right air filter & replace it regularly

Switch your air filter out at least every 90 days for optimum performance. Choose filters that specifically mention Filtrete™ Allergen Defense on the label. These kinds of air filters are engineered to trap microscopic particles such as pollen and pet dander that can create immediate problems in your home’s air quality.

When cleaning up dust from surfaces and floors, don’t use anything with dry bristles

Sweeping surfaces with standard cleaning tools like bristle brooms can stir up the dust that has settled on your surfaces and floors. Using a damp mop or Swiffer type tool to clean your floors will trap particles; sweeping them can stir up the dust. If you have carpet, make sure you vacuum at least once a week with a model that features a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter.

Lay out the welcome mat for guests, not allergens

Did you know door mats or indoor floor mats can help stop allergens from entering your home? They will collect and hold bacteria and other nasty things that you don’t want in your home. Knowing this, try and wash them regularly with warm soapy water and a stiff brush outside. You can take additional steps to protect your home by asking guests to remove their shoes. This will eliminate a majority of dust, mold and allergens from being spread throughout your home.
