Breathe Clean: Improving Indoor Air Quality , New York, New York

In high-population areas, such as New York City, the air is full of pollutants. Individuals can do little to control the air they breathe at work, at school, or out and about. But there are many ways to ensure your home’s air is clean and free of mold, smoke, and allergens. Indoor air quality is especially important in homes where children, the elderly, and other susceptible individuals live. Air Duct Professionals understands this and works with clients in the New York City, NY, area to create comfortable and healthy homes. Anyone who wishes to live a healthy lifestyle can take the following actions to improve their indoor air quality.

Open the Windows

One small breeze does not make a wind storm, but it can help freshen a home. Proper ventilation of outside air can reduce indoor pollutants like second-hand smoke, mold, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and fumes from cleaning chemicals, paint, and even dry-cleaned clothing inside your home.

Control the Moisture

Regulate humidity using a dehumidifier, humidifier, air conditioner, or increased outside ventilation. Keeping the indoor moisture down will reduce the chance of mold developing. Air that is too dry can directly cause health problems such as respiratory issues, dry skin, and dry eyes.

Replace the Filters

Many home appliances have filters that need to be changed regularly. Items to check include central heating systems, air conditioning units, drying machines, vacuum cleaners, and air purifiers. Check the instruction manuals for these appliances to learn the recommended replacement schedule.

Eliminate the Allergens

Even when a home is tidy and cleaned regularly, those dust mites, allergens, and fumes may be clinging to the inside of air ducts. Air Duct Professionals uses NADCA certified equipment to ensure that the pollutants are removed from the home, not just redistributed.

Following these guidelines can not only positively affect the health of a home’s residents by increasing indoor air quality, but it can also improve the overall safety of the home. Fires can start in clogged clothes dryer vents, sooty chimneys, and greasy kitchen hoods. Contact Air Duct Professionals to learn how you can prevent these disasters. Call (646) 359-1438 or visit them online to schedule a cleaning.
