5 Ways to Improve Indoor Air High Quality in Long Island

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.

He was great at explaining price as well as what he was doing. Swayze was friendly and professional while he was here as well as working in these trying times with COVID-19 he followed all procedures and was great.

Emanuel came out to inspect why our commode was not flushing properly. After an inspection he describer the options. Since the commode was over 40 years old we picked the option to replace the commode with a new one. He Asked several questions about what we would like and the showed us two options. We picked the one that we liked and he obtained the commode from the ware house and installed it the same afternoon.. He completed the installation and did a great clean up of the area and answered answered all of our questions. I fully recommend Emanuel and 1-800-Plumber of Pearland

Steve E.

Fine young man and as far as I am concerned he can be his permanent tech. He was very polite and he was very pleased with him and will be calling us again to work with Manolo. Manolo needs a pat on the back and he did a good job.
