DIY Tips for Improved Indoor Air Quality in Your Home
Lisa Crosley is President of Lifestyle Comfort Solutions, and frequently tries out indoor air quality products in her own home before recommending them to her clients. Here’s one simple, DIY tip to help create fresher, cleaner air in your home…and Lisa’s recommendation for how Lifestyle Comfort Solutions can put your HVAC system to work so your family breathes easier.
During our nation’s current health crisis, families are spending more time at home. Too often we think of air pollution as strictly an outdoor problem. However, according to the EPA, indoor air pollution is 5 times the level of outdoor pollution.
Remaining in our homes is a recommended strategy to protect from the coronavirus outbreak. But is the air we are breathing in our homes safe, and fresh, and clean?
Our mission at Lifestyle Comfort Solutions hasn’t changed. We’re here to create homes and workplaces which are comfortable, safe, healthy, and energy efficient.
Keep Floors Fresh
- Vacuum Frequently. Select a model with strong suction and rotating brushes. Models with HEPA filtration are best. Don’t forget to vacuum furniture. Families spending increased time at home may wish to vacuum 3-4 times a week.
- Mop! Vacuuming is the first line of defense, but some dust and other particles will be left behind. Use a wet mop to pick up lingering dirt. Many are fans of dampened microfiber clothes.
- Keep Dirt out! Place large mats both inside and outside entry ways to catch dirt, pollen, and other pollutants which linger on shoes. Decide if you family wishes to embrace a “No Shoes” Policy inside your home.
Install i-Wave technology
Even the cleanest homes benefit from cutting-edge air purification. In tests conducted by EMSL labs (rated Elite by the CDC), I-Wave technology combats staph, MRSA, e.coli, tuberculosis, airborne mold spores, and legionella. I trust i-Wave technology in my own home, and in our place of business. It takes just minutes to install and delivers cleaner, healthier air year-round. It is virtually maintenance free and doesn’t depend on expensive replacement parts.
