Stagnant air inside your home could be dangerous. The EPA has conducted studies and the results of those studies indicate that indoor air can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. We wish the weather were always nice enough that you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Manassas you know that’s often not an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at Woody's Sudden Service Inc has some tips to enhance your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.
If you haven’t already, consider purchasing a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It is surprising what a difference a quality vacuum can make on the air quality of your home. Using a quality vacuum each week will work to fight off allergens and dust that collects in your carpets and furniture.
Of course your vacuum can’t pick up everything, but it’s a wonderful place to start. If someone in your family is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to think about getting a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for enhancing your indoor air quality. It eradicates all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. All of these things have been found to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.
Get Help from Mother Nature
Let mother nature lend you a hand and purify your air in a natural way. As we all learned in science class, plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also combat harmful toxins within your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.
If you’re looking into adding some foliage to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study determined the optimal plants for such an important task. If you have any pets, double-check and make sure any plants you bring into to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to snack on them.
Ventilate Your Home
In an effort to make homes more energy-efficient, contemporary homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is awesome for energy-efficiency, the shortage of ventilation can create a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned earlier, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer many ventilation solutions to boost your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
The quality of the air inside your home and your comfort is important to the team at Woody's Sudden Service Inc in Manassas. We will partner with you to help you breathe healthy and breathe easy.
