Stagnant air inside your home could be harmful. The EPA has conducted studies and the results of those studies indicate that the air inside your home can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. It would be a dream to always have the kind of weather where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Pacheco you know that’s not usually an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at Clean Air HVAC has some tips to improve your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.
If you haven’t already, consider purchasing a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. You’d be surprised at the improvement a quality vacuum can make on the air quality of your home. Vacuuming once a week with a quality vacuum will work to combat allergens and dust that collects in your carpets and furniture.
Of course your vacuum can’t pick up everything, but it’s a great place to start. If someone in your family is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to look into a PureAir™ Air Purification System.
