Professional Advice on Improving Indoor Air Quality

Air contamination is considered to be one of the biggest environmental risks to the world.

As a matter of fact, it is accountable for over 7 million fatalities, annually.

As an example, it has shown to be responsible for causing pneumonia, emphysema, as well as other respiratory problems. Not only that, but it can contribute to heart problems, lung illness, and even cancer cells.

That's why it's important to take notice of the air high quality in your house. Besides, who wants to be breathing in hazardous invisible particles.

Need some ideas about boosting your air quality? We have you covered. Keep reading for everything that you need to know.

1. Monitor the Moisture Levels

Mold as well as mildew grow in wet atmospheres. Not only can they create allergies, but they can also cause extra severe reactions such as shortness of breath which result in hospitalization

Taking that into consideration, you need to constantly monitor the moisture content in the air. Generally speaking, your moisture should be around 35% - 45%. If needed, you can always utilize a dehumidifier to adjust the moisture level.

Keep an eye out for leakages too-- they can quickly trigger mold growth. The quicker you call a plumber, the less money you will spend.

2. Have Your HVAC System Regularly Inspected

Poor upkeep of your HVAC system can reduce the level of your indoor air quality

Dust as well as various other debris can easily collect in your ductwork and thus spread throughout your entire ventilation system.

The last thing that you want is to circulate contaminated air throughout your house - it never hurts to have a professional take a look at your system.

3. Clean the Floors

As a general guideline, it is good practice to clean your floors, at least once a week. Keep in mind, irritants such as pollen, dirt, as well as pet dog dander can easily collect without you knowing.

Aside from mopping or using your Swifter, you should make use of your vacuum cleaner-- preferably one with a HEPA filter. They're able to catch particles to ensure that they aren't released back into your house.

4. Use an Air Purifier

Air purifiers are devices that are designed to remove airborne contaminants such as pollen, dust, and pet dander. How do they work?

They pull the air in your home through a series of filters. From there, purified air is circulated back into the room. Just don't forget to replace the HEPA filter every 12 to 18 months!

5. Get Some Houseplants

Houseplants are more than just decorations—they can actually help purify the air in your home. More specifically, they're capable of absorbing toxins, including VOCs.

If anything, you just want to make sure that you don't water them too much. You don't want the plant-soil to be overly damp as that can actually promote the growth of harmful microorganisms.

This was my first time with 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland. I called with a minor issue with the dishwasher drain hose and asked that a tech be dispatched on Saturday so that I could be home from work. Chad was scheduled between 8am & 10am today (Sat) and arrived just before 9am. Chad was very knowledgeable and explained to me the entire process. He also answered my many many questions about what he was doing as he was doing it. I'm a smart guy but know very little about plumbing. I felt very comfortable with Chad doing the repair. The long and the short of it, 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland has a new longtime customer and I will request that Chad be sent if possible the next time I have a plumbing issue.

Detailed orientated and honest inspection. Chad took his time and explained everything that was going on very well. The service fee was fair for the small issues he fixed, and he was able to make a referral for water restoration for us, I would use his service again and plan to when our water heater goes out.

Thanks for getting here so quickly and finding the issue. Also thanks for suggesting the locking caps - Hopefully this will prevent theft of the freon.

Chad was very informative and professional. He and his co-worker are a very rare breed in that they fully prepared to go to work and get the job done right then. I would definitely recommend and use again Chad an 1-800-plumber.
