5 Ways to Improve Indoor Air High Quality in Portland

We are sure you are on this page because you have a high intent to improve your air quality. Here are a couple of steps you can take today!

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.
