Air pollution is not just a problem for urbanites in large cities. Indoor pollutants are common no matter where you live and can cause respiratory problems like asthma, allergies, and heart and lung conditions.
Keeping your home clean is hugely important when combatting the negative effects of indoor air pollutants. Use these tips and call in the professionals for carpet cleaning, air duct cleaning, and more so you and your family can breathe easier:
- Carpet Cleaning - One of the easiest ways to reduce the amount of pollutants in your home is to clean the carpets regularly. Vacuum at least twice a week. If you have pets, try to vacuum more often and schedule professional carpet cleanings at least once a year. Cleaning the carpet will drastically lower the amount of dirt, dust, pet dander, dust mites, and allergens in each room. Try to focus at least once a week on basic upholstery cleaning as well.
- Water Damage Restoration - If water damage has occurred, either from a burst pipe or inclement weather, it is vital to get proper water damage restoration. When excess moisture is not cleaned, especially in cool, dark areas, mold and mildew might start to grow. Breathing in mold spores can cause symptoms of allergies and asthma to flare up.
- Air Duct Cleaning - When air circulates through the ducts, it brings dirt and dust with it. Dust has a tendency to build up, and when combined with moisture, can also cause mold. Once mold starts to grow, it can easily spread through the ducts. Professional cleaners will open, brush, and vacuum the ducts, eliminating trapped dust and mold. A thorough air duct cleaning will help dramatically when it comes to indoor air quality.
